Heard this yesterday:
When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
(Williams, “Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah,” 1745)
Which reminded me of this:
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides.
(Hill, “Sometimes When We Touch,” 1977)
