'DEATH

2  Nearer my Father's house,
Where many mansions be; Nearer my Saviour's glorious throne; Nearer the crystal sea;
3   Nearer the bound of life,
Where burdens are laid down; Nearer to leave the heavy cross; Nearer to gain the crown.
4  But, lying dark between,
Winding down through the night,
There rolls the deep and unknown stream That leads at last to light.
5   E'en now, perchance, my feet
Are slipping on the brink, And I, to-day, am nearer home, Nearer than now I think.
6  Father, perfect my trust!
Strengthen my power of faith! Nor let me stand, at last, alone Upon the shore of death.
Phoebe Carv, 1852

2 It is not death to close
The eye long dimmed by tears, And wake, in glorious repose To spend eternal years.
3 It is not death to bear
The wrench that sets us free From dungeon chain, to breathe the air Of boundless liberty.
