Life, even life to thee, I now proclaim— Eternal life in Jesus' wondrous name— 0 take the boon! thy days of pain are o'er, Thy heaven begun—thou liv'st forevermore!
Struggle on, tho' fierce the tempest,
Tho' the whirlwinds round thee roar, Tho' the towering billows, rising,
Fiercely dash against the shore; Tho' thy bark, its course forgetting,
Cruel rocks may dash upon,— Let the stout heart, unrelenting,
'Mid the darkness, struggle on.
Well I know how fierce thy conflict
With the powers of earth and hell; And the dangers of thy pathway,
Ah! I know, I know them well— Yet permit me, while thou 'rt mourning
Every earthly vision flown,— 0, permit me,still to whisper,
'Mid the darkness, struggle on !
Fare thee well! when I am wandering
In another track of life, Weary of the ceaseless conflict,
Burden'd with the painful strife;
