The day approacheth, O my soul!

  The great decisive day, 

Which from the verge of mortal life 

  Shall bear thee far away. 


Yet does one short preparing hour,

  One precious hour remain: 

Rouse thee, my soul, with all thy pow'r, 

  Nor let it pass in vain. 


With me, my brethren soon must die, 

  And at his bar appear: 

Then be our our intercourse improv'd 

 To mutual comfort here.
