2 When comes the hourof failing breath,

And I must wrestle, Lord, with death, When from my sight all fades away, And when my tongue no more can

say, And when mine ears no more can hear, And when my heart is racked with

fear: 3 When all my mind is darkened o'er, And human help can do no more; Then come, Lord Jesus! come with

speed, And help me in my hour of need; Lead me from this dark vale beneath, And shorten then the pangs of death.

4 Joyful my resurrection be,

Thou in the judgment plead for me, And hide my sins, Lord, from Thy

face, And give me life, of Thy rich grace! I trust Thee utterly, my Lord, For Thou hast promised in Thy

word!

5 Dear Lord, forgive us all our guilt;
Help us to wait until Thou wilt
That we depart; and let our faith
Be brave, and conquer e'en in death;
Firm resting on Thy sacred word,
Until we sleep in Thee, our Lord.

P. Eber, 1565.

2 And sure thy parting has been blessed, 3 We wait with glad and patient hope Bless'd be thy life's example!

The glorious revelation, Thou spirit, calmly gone to rest,

While He this pilgrim dress folds up
And thou, its mouldering temple. In holy preservation.
O soul, thy Savior's near!

O happy souls who rest
The morning star shines clear;

In Jesus' arms and breast.
And you, ye members, softly sleep Love leads us all our path aright,
Beneath love's shadow still and deep. Through such a depth to such a height,

N. L. von Zinzendorf, 1735
