DYING SAINT TO HIS SOUL




Vital spark of heavenly flame!
Quit, O quit this mortal frame!
Trembling, hoping, lingering, flying,
O, the pain, the bliss of dying!
Cease, fond nature, cease thy strife,
And let me languish into life.


Hark! they whisper! angels say.
Sister spirit, come away!
What is this absorbs me quite
Steals my senses, shuts my sight,
Drowns my spirit, draws my breath ^
Tell me, my soul, can this be death?


The world recedes, it disappears!
Heaven opens on mine eyes! my ears
With sounds seraphic ring!
Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly!
O grave, where is thy victory!
O death, where is thy sting!

Heaven opens on mine eyss! my ears
With sounds seraphic ring!
Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly!
O grave, where is thy victory!
O death, where is thy sting!
