HYMN 102

L. M.

A happy resurrection.

No, I'll repine at death no more,

But with a cheerful gasp resign

To the cold dungeon of the grave

These dying, with'ring limbs of mine.

Let worms devour my wasting flesh,

And crumble all my bones to dust,

My God shall raise my frame anew

At the revival of the just.

Break, sacred morning, through the skies,

Bring that delightful, dreadful day;

Cut short the hours, dear Lord, and come;

Thy ling'ring wheels, how long they stay!

[Our weary spirits faint to see

The light of thy returning face,

And hear the language of those lips,

Where God has shed his richest grace.]

[Haste, then, upon the wings of love,

Rouse all the pious sleeping clay,

That we may join in heav'nly joys,

And sing the triumph of the day.]
