Peaceful Shore 528b

Tune: Mrs. Leila (Wilson) Wilkinson and Robert Guy Wilson, 1927
Lyrics: Dover Selection, 1828
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
A few more days on earth to spend,
And all my toils and cares shall end;
And I shall see my God and friend,
And praise and sing for evermore.

Then, O my soul, despond no more,
The storm of life will soon be o'er,
And I shall find the peaceful shore
Of everlasting heav'nly rest.
