Struggle between beloved and duty

Thou hast warned me of my duty,
Which I can't forget,
And Thou sayest, if I listen,
I shall not regret.

For duty's sake, hence I am bound
To this world of grief,
And n'er untill I go to Thee,
Shall I find relief.

Thou didst say when duty's done
I may follow Thee,
What a blessing, O Beloved,
When Thou callest me.
