See a flood of sacred light, Which no more shall yield to night! Transitory world, farewell! Jesus calls, with Him to dwell!
With Thy heavenly presence blest, Death is life, and labour rest; Welcome sleep or death to me, Still secure, for still -with Thee !
Philip Doddridge. 1755.
CCLXV.
Midnight.
My God, now I from sleep awake,
The sole possession of me take ;
From midnight terrors me secure,
And guard my heart from thoughts impure !
Bless'd angels ! while we silent lie, You hallelujahs sing on high ; You joyful hymn the Ever-blest Before the Throne, and never rest.
I with your choir celestial join In offering up a hymn divine ; With you in Heaven I hope to dwell, And bid the night and world farewell.
My soul, when I shake off this dust, Lord, in Thy arms I will entrust: O make me Thy peculiar care ; Some mansion for my soul prepare !
