Christian Worship Deliverance From The Fear Of Death.
O God of love! with cheering ray,
Gild our expiring hour of day;
Thy love, through each revolving year,
Has wiped away affliction’s tear.
Free us from death’s terrific gloom,
And all the fear which shrouds the tomb;
Heighten our joys, support our head,
Before we sink among the dead.
May death conclude our toils and tears!
May death destroy our sins and fears!
May death, through Jesus, be our friend!
May death be life, when life shall end!
Crown our last moment with thy power-
The latest in our latest hour;
Till to the raptured heights we soar,
Where fears and death are known no more.
