FAREWELL




Ye fleeting charms of earth farewell!
Your springs of joy are dry;
My soul now seeks another home.
A brighter world on high.


Farewell. ye friends, whose tender care
Has long engag’d my love;
Your fond embrace I now exchange
For better friends above.


Cheerful I leave this vale of tears,
Where pains and sorrows grow;
Welcome the day that ends my toil,
And ev’ry scene of woe.


No more shall sin disturb my breast-
My God shall frown no more;
The streams of love divine shall yield
Transports unknown before.


Fly, then, ye interposing days-
Lord, send thy summons down;
The hand that strikes me to the dust,
Shall raise me to a crown.
