Oh if my Lord would come and meet,
My soul would stretch her wings in haste,
Fly fearless thro' death's iron gates,
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.
Dedicated to J. W. Bassett and his family.
