Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 214
1. My, soul, come, meditate the day,
And think how near it stands,
When thou must quit this house of clay,
And fly to unknown lands.

2. Oh! could we die with those who die,
And place us in their stead;
Then would our spirits learn to fly,
And converse with the dead:—

3. Then should we see the saints above
In their own glorious forms;
And wonder why our souls should love
To dwell with mortal worms.

4. We should almost forsake our clay
Before the summons come,
And pray, and wish our souls away
To their eternal home.
