O Friend, hope for him whilst you live, know whilst you live,
understand whilst you live; for in life deliverance abides.
If your bonds be not broken whilst living,
what hope of deliverance in death?
It is but an empty dream that the soul shall have union with Him
because it has passed from the body;
If He is found now, He is found then.
If not, we do but go to dwell in the City of Death.
