1 In peace and joy I now depart
At God's disposing;
For full of comfort is my heart;
So the Lord hath promised me,
And death for me is but a slumber.
2 'Tis Christ that wrought this work for me,
My faithful Savior,
Whom Thou hast made mine yees to see
By Thy favor.
Now I know He is my Life,
My help in need and dying.
3 Him Thou hast unto all set forth
Their great Salvation;
And to His kingdom called the earth,
By Thy dead and wholesome Word,
In ev'ry place resounding.
4 He is the Hope and saving Light
Of lands benighted;
By Him are they who dwelt in night
Fed and lighted.
He is Israel's Praise and Bliss,
Their Joy, Reward, and Glory.
