255

S.M.

1
And am I born to die,
To lay this body down?
And must my trembling spirit fly
Into a world unknown?

2
When from the earth I go,
What will become of me?
Eternal happiness or woe
Must then my portion be.

3
I must from God be driven,
Or with the Saviour dwell;
Must come, at His command, to heaven,
Or else depart to hell.

4
Teach me, O Lord, to flee
Thy dreadful wrath severe;
That when the Judge of all I see,
I may with joy appear.
