O SING to me of Heaven,

When I am called to die;

Sing songs of holy ecstacy,

To waft my soul on high.

When cold and sluggish drops,

Roll off my dying brow;

Break forth in songs of joyfulness,

Let heaven begin below,

When my last moments come,

Oh! smooth my dying face;

And catch the bright seraphic gleam,

That on my features plays.

Assembled round my bed,-

Let one loud song be given,

Let music cheer me last on earth

And greet me first in Heaven.

Then close my sightless eyes,

And lay me down to rest,

And clasp my cold and clammy hands,

Upon my lifeless breast.

Around my lifeless clay,

Assemble those I love,

And sing of Heaven-delightful Heaven,

My glorious home above.
