1 The hour of my departure
I may not know,
But Christ in love hath taught me
To watch while here below;
My lamp to keep bright burning
With oil divine,
That at the Lord’s appearing,
My soul with grace may shine.

Refrain:
The hour of my departure
My Savior knows,
And in his love confiding,
I dwell in sweet repose.

2 The hour of my departure
I’ll keep in view,
And strive, while here I linger,
Some precious work to do;
Some service for the Master,
Or cross to bear,
That I a crown unfading,
And robe of white may wear. [Refrain]

3 The hour of my departure
May soon be here;
To me the thought is joyful,
And yonder light is clear;
I see the sunlit mountains
Where I shall stand,
I hear the songs enchanting
Of yon celestial band. [Refrain]
