LIFE EVERLASTING
509
[2 There everlasting spring abides, And never-withering flowers;
I Death, like a narrow sea, divides This heavenly land from ours.
3 Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood Stand dressed in living green; So to the Jews old Canaan stood, While Jordan rolled between.
4  But timorous mortals start and shrink
To cross this narrow sea; And linger, shivering, on the brink, And fear to launch away.
5  0 could we make our doubts remove,
Those gloomy doubts that rise, And see the Canaan that we love With unbeclouded eyes;
6 Could we but climb where Moses stood, And view the landscape o'er, Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold flood, Should fright us from the shore.
Rev. Isaac Watts, 1707
