SAINT TAKING HIS FLIGHT TO HEAVEN




Death is no dreadful sound,
To souls who love their God;
With joy they leave this thorny ground,
And seek a new abode.


Behold the dawning day,
The saint extends his wings;
With rapid flight he soars away,
And as he goes, he sings.


‘Farewell, ye kindred worms,
That feed on dust below;
Yonder I see celestial forms
And haste to join them too.


Farewell, deceitful earth,
No longer boast thy charms;
In Christ I view superior worth,
And rush into his arms.


Let sinners, void of grace,
Fear their approaching end;
Jesus gives death an angels face,
And makes the foe a friend.
