And then i born to die
To lay this body down

And must lie trembling
Spirit fly into a world unknown
And must lie trembling
Spirit fly into a world unknown

Soon as from Earth i go
What will become of me?

Eternal happyness, or woe?
Must then my poor son be?
Eternal happyness, or woe?
Must then my poor son be?

A land of the best shade
I'm pierced by you, my thought

That dreary of the dead
Where all things are forgot
That dreary of the dead
Where all things are forgot

    Lyric CorrectionOh my goodness, these lyrics are all pathetically, completely wrong...! Correct ones:

    And am I born to die?
    To lay this body down?

    And must my trembling spirit fly
    Into a world unknown?
    And must my trembling spirit fly
    Into a world unknown?

    Soon as from Earth I go
    What will become of me?

    Eternal happiness or woe must then my portion be
    Eternal happiness or woe must then my portion be

    A land of deepest shade
    Unpierced by human thought
    That dreary region of the dead where all things are forgot
    That dreary region of the dead where all things are forgot...
