- LIFT ME HIGHER.


LIFT ME HIGHER.


LIFT me higher! Lift me higher!
From this sphere of earthly dross;
Upward still! far yonder gleaming,
Shines my Saviour's glorious cross.

Oh, very beautiful is life,
And earthly flowers are passing fair:
But lift, oh lift me up to heaven,
And let me rest forever there.

There, no care shall plough its furrows;
There, no sin shall blur my heart;
There, in blessed choirs of angels,
I shall sing a humble part.

Lift me higher! Lift me higher!
Friends of earth, no tears for me!
From temptation, sin, and sorrow,
Let me be forever free!

Ah! I hear my Saviour call me!
Clad in heavenly robes of white;
He will lift me higher, higher,
From this world of storm and night.

Lift me higher! Lift me higher!
Farewell earthly friends I love.
Lift me higher! Lift me higher!
To that better world above!

"Lift me higher!" And our darling
Gently closed her wearied eyes;
And her spirit, lifted higher,
Reached its home beyond the skies.

She is sleeping, and white marble
This inscription only bears:
"Our lost flower--thirteen summer--
Lifted higher--than life's cares.
