When the spark of life is waning
Weep not for me
When the languid eye is stealing
Weep not for me
When the feeble pulse is ceasing
Start not at its swift decreasing
'Tis the fettered soul's releasing
Weep weep not for me.

When the pangs of death assail me,
Weep not for me.
Christ is mine he cannot fail me,
Weep not for me.
Yes, though sin and doubt endeavour
From his love my soul to sever,
Jesus is my strength forever
Weep weep not for me.
