Representative Text

1 Lord, now let test Thou Thy servant
From this life depart in peace!
Praise be Thine, and blessings fervent,
For the wearied soul's release.

2 He who saw Thy great salvation,
With the eye of faith and love,
In this earthly habitation,
Walketh now by sight above!

3 Cares and crosses all are over,
Sin and sorrow overcome;
And the soul, Christ her Lover,
Hath at last been taken home.

4 While life's paths we still are pressing,
Grant us, Father, steadfast faith,
And, for Christ's sake, grant the blessing
Of a peaceful, Christian death.
