O Saviour of the faithful dead. Bishop R. Heber. [On Recovery from Sickness.] First published in the Christian Observer, Jan., 1816, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines, and headed, "View of Death." In Heber's posthumous Hymns, &c, 1827, p. 152, it is slightly altered, divided into 8 stanzas of 4 lines, and the heading is changed to "On Recovery from Sickness." It is usually given in an abridged form of 2 stanzas of 8 lines, or 4 stanzas of 4 lines, but its use is not extensive.
