2 When comes the hour of 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.

3 Fare ye well, beloved friends!

Ye whose tears so fast are flowing;
God for all will make amends,

For our griefs are His bestowing:
Mourn not joys that e'en endure,

Heavenly joys alone are sure.
4 Weep not-lo! my Savior there,

Mercy to my soul revealing;
I, too, have obtained a share

In His heart's deep wounds so healing,
Whence the holy fountain streamed

Which this sinful world redeemed.
5 Weep not-my Redeemer lives -

High above dark earth ascending,
Hope her heavenly comfort gives;

Faith stands by, her shield extending;
Love eternal whispers near,
“Child of God, no longer fear."

3 We wait with glad and patient hope

The glorious revelation, While He this pilgrim dress folds up In holy preservation.

O happy souls who rest

In Jesus' arms and breast. Love leads us all our path aright, Through such a depth to such a height,

N. L. von Zinzendorf, 1735
