The Christianís Flight 466

Tune: W. F. Moore, 1866
Lyrics: Philip Doddridge, 1755
Meter: Particular Meter: 8,6,5,6,8,6,8,6
Not many years their rounds shall roll;
Each moment brings it nigh,
When the Christian's soul
To heav'n above shall fly.
Ye wheels of nature speed your course,
Ye mortal powers decay,
Fast as ye bring the night of death
Ye bring eternal day.
