FAREWELL, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Tie the strings to my life, my lord, / then I am ready to go!
Last Line: Now I am ready to go!
Subject(s): Christianity; Judgment Day; Prayer; Reformation; End Of The World; Doomsday; Fall Of Man

Tie the strings to my life, my Lord,
Then I am ready to go!
Just a look at the horses --
Rapid! That will do!
Put me in on the firmest side,
So I shall never fall;
For we must ride to the Judgment,
And it's partly down hill.
But never I mind the bridges,
And never I mind the sea;
Held fast in everlasting race
By my own choice and thee.
Good-by to the life I used to live,
And the world I used to know;
And kiss the hills for me, just once;
Now I am ready to go!
