ON RECOVERY FROM DANGEROUS ILLNESS




My God! thy service well demands
The remnant of my days:
Why was this fleeting breath renewed
But to renew thy praise?


Thine arms of everlasting love
Did this weak frame sustain,
When life was hovering o’er the grave,
And nature sank with pain.


Thou, when the pains of death were felt,
Didst chase the fears of hell;
And teach my pale and quiv'ring lips
Thy matchless grace to tell.


Calmly I bowed my fainting head,
And said thy time was best;
Nor feared to obey my Father’s call
To his eternal rest.


Into thy hands, my Saviour God,
Did I my soul resign:
In firm dependence on that truth,
Which made salvation mine.


Back from the borders of the grave
At thy command I come;
Nor would I urge a speedier flight
To my celestial home.


Where thou appointest my abode,
There would I choose to be:
For in thy presence death is life,
And earth is heaven with thee.


*** alt vers


Where thou determin'st my abode,
There would I choose to be:
For in thy presence death is life,
And earth is heaven with thee.
