Hollyhocks with Man dieth and wasteth away and

  Man dieth and wasteth away,
  And where is he?-Hark!  from the skies,
I hear a voice answer and say,
  “The spirit of man never dies!
His body, which came from the earth,
  Must mingle again with the sod;
His soul, which in heaven had birth,
  Returns to the bosom of God.”

  No terror has death, or the grave,
  To those who believe in the Lord,
Who know the Redeemer can save,
  And lean on the faith of his word:
While ashes to ashes, and dust
  We give unto dust, in our gloom,
The light of salvation we trust,
  Which hangs like a lamp in the tomb.

  O Lord God Almighty!  to thee
  We turn, as our solace above;
The waters may fail from the sea,
  But never thy fountains of love:
O teach us thy will to obey,
  And sing with one heart and accord,
“He gave, and he taketh away,
  And praised be the name of the Lord.”

George P. Morris
When Jesus comes to reward His servants,
Whether it be noon or night,
Faithful to Him will He find us watching,
With our lamps all trimm’d and bright?

If at the dawn of the early morning,
He shall call us one by one,
When to the Lord we restore our talents,
Will He answer thee- Well done?

Have we been true to the trust He left us?
Do we seek to do our best?
If in our hearts there is naught condemns us,
We shall have a glorious rest.

Blessed are those whom the Lord finds watching,
In His glory they shall share;
If He shall come at the dawn or midnight,
Will He find us watching there?

Oh, can we say we are ready, brother?
Ready for the soul’s bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?

Fanny J. Crosby
