Here you will find the Poem Deathless Principle! Arise of poet Augustus Montague Toplady
Deathless principle! arise; Soar, thou native of the skies; Pearl of price, by Jesus bought, To His glorious likeness wrought, Go, to shine before His throne; Deck His mediatorial crown; Go, His triumphs to adorn; Made for God, to God return. Lo! He beckons from on high, Fearless to His presence fly; Thine the merit of His blood, Thine the righteousness of God. Angels joyful to attend, Hovering round thy pillow bend; Wait to catch the signal given, And escort thee quick to heaven. Shudder not to pass the stream; Venture all thy care on Him;- Him whose dying love and power Stilled its tossing, hushed its roar: Safe is the expanded wave; Gentle as a summer's eve: Not one object of His care Ever suffered shipwreck there. See the haven full in view; Love divine shall bear thee through. Trust to that propitious gale; Weigh thy anchor, spread thy sail. Saints in glory, perfect made, Wait thy passage through the shade; Ardent for thy coming o'er, See! they throng the blissful shore. Mount, their transports to improve; Join the longing choir above; Swiftly to their wish be given; Kindle higher joy in heaven.- Such the prospects that arise To the dying Christian's eyes; Such the glorious vista, Faith Opens through the shades of death.
