Representative Text

1 Thou must go forth alone, my soul!
Thou must go forth alone,
To other scenes, to other worlds,
That mortal hath not known.

2 Thou must go forth alone, my soul,
To tread the narrow vale;
But he, whose word is sure, hath said,
His mercy shall not fail.

3 Thou must go forth alone, my soul,
To meet thy God above:
But shrink not; he has said, my soul,
He is a God of love!

4 His rod and staff shall comfort thee
Across the dreary road,
Till thou shalt join the blessed ones
In heaven's serene abode.
