2 How happily the working days
In this dear service fly, How rapidly the closing hour,
The time of rest draws nigh, When all the faithful gather home,
A joyful company; And ever where the Master is
Shall His blest servants be.
3 Thus may I serve Thee, gracious Lord;
Thus ever Thine alone, My soul and body given to Thee,
The purchase Thou hast won; Through evil or through good report
Still keeping by Thy side; And by my life or by my death
Let Christ be magnified.
Rev. Cakl J. P. Spitta, 1833. Tr. Jane Borthwick, 1854
