Hymn/Song Information

Ready for my earthen bed Let me rest my fainting




Resting in his power to save,
Looking now beyond the grave,
Calm I lay my body down,
Rise to an immortal crown!


---Alternative verses---


Thus do I my couch prepare;
Oh how soft when Christ is there!
There my breathless Savior laid,
Turns it to a spicy bed;


Ready for my earthen bed,
Let me rest my fainting head,
Welcome life's expected close,
Sink in permanent repose.


Jesus' blood, to which I fly,
Doth my conscience purify,
Signs my weary soul's release,
Bids me now depart in peace.


Thus do I my bed prepare;
O how soft when Christ is there!
Calm I lay my body down,
Rise to an immortal crown.
