SUPPORT IN DEATH




Behold the gloomy vale,
Which thou, my soul, must tread,
Beset with terrors fierce and pale,
That leads thee to the dead.


Ye pleasing scenes adieu,
Which I so long have known;
My friends, a long farewell to you,
For I must pass alone.


And thou, beloved clay,
Long partner of my cares,
In this rough path art torn away,
With agony and tears.


But see a ray of light,
With splendor all divine,
Breaks thro' these doleful realms of night
And makes its horrors shine.


Where death and darkness reigns,
Jehovah is my stay;
His rod my trembling feet sustains—
His staff defends my way.


Dear Shepherd, lead me on;
My soul disdains to fear;
Death's gloomy phantoms all are flown,
Now life’s great Lord is near.
