"Idumea" as written by and Patrick Wolf....
And am I born to die?
To lay this body down?
And must my trembling spirit fly
Into a world unknown
A land of deepest shade
Unpierced by human thought
The dreary regions of the dead
Where all things are forgot?

Soon as from earth I go
What will become of me?
Eternal happiness or woe
Must then my portion be
Waked by the trumpet's sound
I from my grave shall rise
And see the Judge with glory crowned
And see the flaming skies

    General CommentIdumea -

    another name for Edom, a nation in the Middle East. Also, a name for Esau, a Biblical character. A hymn by Charles Wesley.

    The hymn, though Methodist, deals with the Catholic 'Four Last Things': death, judgement, heaven & hell.
