Servant of God, well done; Jfcst from thy love employ; The battle fought, the vic'ry won,
tnter thy Master's joy. The voice at midnight came;
She started up to hear; .// mortal arrow pierced her frame;
She fell, but felt no Jear. The pains of death are past; Tabor arid sorrow ceased; ./hid life's long warfare closed at last, Her soul is found in peace. Soldier of Christ, well done; Praise be thy new employ; .find, while eternal ages run,
{{ist in thy Saviour's joy.
