Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: for mine eyes have seen thy salvation.
~ Luke 2:29-30
When we have number’d all our years,
And stand, at length, on Jordan’s brink;
Though the flesh fail with mortal fears,
Oh! let not then the spirit sink:
But strong in faith, and hope, and love,
Plunge through the stream to rise above.
