Subject(s): Death

"As dying, and behold we live!"
So live the Saints while time is flying;
Make all they make, give all they give,
As dying;

Bear all they bear without replying;
They grieve as tho' they did not grieve,
Uplifting praise with prayer and sighing.

Patient thro' life's long - drawn reprieve,
Aloof from strife, at peace from crying,
The morrow to its day they leave,
As dying.
