COMFORT UNDER THE DEATH OF MINISTERS




What—though the arm of conquering death
Does God's own house invade;
What—though the Prophet and the Priest
Be numbered with the dead!


Though earthly shepherds dwell in dust,
The aged and the young;
The watchful eye in darkness closed,
And mute the instructive tongue:


The Eternal Shepherd still survives,
New comforts to impart;
His eye still guides us, and his voice
Still animates our heart.


Then let our drooping hearts revive,
And all our tears be dry;
Why should those eyes be drowned in grief.
Which view a Saviour nigh!


"Lo! I am with you," saith the Lord,
"My Church shall safe abide;
For I will ne'er forsake my own,
Whose souls in me confide."


Through every scene of life and death,
This promise is our trust;
And this shall be our children's song,
When we are cold in dust.
