Hymn/Song Information

There is an hour when I must part With




There is an hour, when I must part
With all I hold most dear;
And life, with its best hopes, will then
As nothingness appear.


There is an hour, when I must lie
Low on affliction's bed,
And anguish, pain, and tears become
My bitter daily bread.


There is an hour, when I must sink
Beneath the stroke of death,
And yield to Him, who gave it first,
My struggling vital breath.


There is an hour, when I must stand
Before the judgment seat,
And all my sins, and all my foes,
In awful vision meet.


There is an hour, when I must look
On one eternity,
And nameless woe, or blissful life,
My endless portion be.


O Saviour, then, in all my need,
Be near, be near to me ;
And let my soul, in stedfast faith,
Find life and Heaven in Thee!


---Alternative verses---


There is an hour, when I must sink
Beneath the stroke of death,
And yield to Him, who gave it first,
My struggling vital breath.
