And Am I Born to Die?

Hymn 220 S.M. 1. And am I born to die? To lay this body down? And must my trembling spirit fly Into a world unknown? 2. Waked by the trumpet's sound, I from the grave must rise, And see the Judge, with glory crowned, And see the flaming skies. 3. How shall I leave my tomb?— With triumph or regret?— A fearful or a joyful doom— A curse, or blessing meet? 4. I must from God be driven— Or with my Savior dwell; Must come at his command to heav'n— Or else depart—to hell. 5. O thou, that wouldst not have One wretched sinner die, Who diedst thyself, my soul to save From endless misery;— 6. Show me the way to shun Thy dreadful wrath severe; That, when thou comest on thy throne, I may with joy appear.
