Leaning on Jesusí Breast 450
Tune: Thomas Jefferson Allen, 1902
Alto: Maud Lee Allen, 1902
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Long Meter Double (8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8)
O that my Lord would come and meet,
My soul would stretch her wings in haste,
Fly fearless thro' death's iron gate,
Nor feel the terrors as she passed.
Jesus can make a dying bed
Feel soft as downy pillows are,
While on His breast I lean my head,
And breathe my life out sweetly there.
