Hymn/Song Information

As over the past my memory strays Why




As o'er the past my memory strays,
Why heaves the secret sigh?
'Tis that I mourn departed days.
Still unprepared to die.


The world and worldly things belov'd,
My anxious thoughts employ'd;
And time unhallow'd, unimprov'd,
Presents a fearful void.


Yet, holy Father, wild despair
Chase from my laboring breast;
Thy grace it is which prompts the prayer.
That grace can do the rest.


My life's brief remnant all be thine;
And when thy sure decree
Bids me this fleeting breath resign,
O speed my soul to Thee.
