To serve the Lord alone;
And nought but death shall e'er divide
Thy loving daughter from thy side."

Which just before her husband told.

We may serve our S'iour thus;
Count his work our hig est pleasure,
Live to Him who died for us!

Then with heavenly joys be crown'd!

And our house will soon be gone,
For the tide is rolling on.

Leaning upon his gentle breast,
We enter everlasting rest.

O keep me near thy side.
