Wonder why this stanza is missing from modern hymnals:
Teach me to live, that I may dreadThe grave as little as my bed.Teach me to die, that so I mayRise glorious at the awful day.
@zudn maybe because the meaning/connotations of the word 'awful' have changed?
@zachdecook What could substitute for it?I think too nobody wants to be reminded of death today, much less learn how to die.
