IT is the Lord-enthroned in light,

His claims are all divine;

He has an undisputed right,

To govern thee and thine.

Let then thine anxious doubts and fears

All yield to his control;

His tender mercies shall illume

The midnight of thy soul.

Then may'st thou close thine eyes in death

Free from distracting care;

For death is life-the grave is rest,

If Christ be with thee there.
