The Time is Rolling On (Shiloah) 426b

Tune: Thomas Waller, 1859
Alto: Miss Julia Sellers, 1902
Lyrics: Berryman T. Hicks, 1835
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
The time is swiftly rolling on
When I must faint and die,
My body to the dust return,
And there forgotten lie.

Let persecutions rage around,
And Antichrist appear,
My silent dust beneath the ground,
There's no disturbance there.
