Tie the strings to my life, my Lord,
  Then I am ready to go!
Just a look at the horses—
  Rapid! That will do!
 
Put me in on the firmest side,
  So I shall never fall;
For we must ride to the Judgment,
  And it’s partly down hill.
 
But never I mind the bridges,
  And never I mind the sea;
Held fast in everlasting race
  By my own choice and thee.
 
Good-by to the life I used to lives,
  And the world I used to know;
And kiss the hills for me, just once;
  Now I am ready to go!
