Life in Death

Author: Gaskell Hymnal: A Book of Hymns for Public and Private Devotion (15th ed.) #345 (1866) Hymnal Title: A Book of Hymns for Public and Private Devotion (15th ed.) First Line: Thanks, thanks unto God! who in mercy hath spoken Lyrics: Thanks, thanks unto God! who in mercy hath spoken The truths which have pierced through the spirit’s sad gloom; Whose love with the light of its presence hath broken The darkness which hung o’er the desolate tomb. What now shall affright us? A Father almighty Keeps watch round our footsteps wherever we go; His mercy is sleepless,—His wisdom unfailing,— He knoweth each want and regardeth each woe. Where now is death’s terror? he comes as an angel To carry the spirit away to its rest; The gloom which he weareth is lost in the message He brings from the Being who loveth us best. May we live ever true to the hopes He hath given, While they shed o’er our path a still holier light; Ever making us nearer and nearer to heaven, More pure our affections, our spirits more bright.
