83b THE DYING MINISTER
1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune
The time is swiftly rolling on,
When I must faint and die;
My body to the dust return,
And there forgotten lie.
Let persecution rage around,
And anti-Christ appear;
My silent dust beneath the ground,
There's no disturbance there.
My brother preachers, fare you well,
Your fellowship I love;
In time no more I shall you see,
And soon we'll meet above.
