Mu’adh ibn Jabal (رضي الله عنه) said the following when death came to him:

مَرْحَبًا بِالْمَوْتِ مَرْحَبًا، زَائِرٌ مُغِبٌّ، حَبِيبٌ جَاءَ عَلَى فَاقَةٍ، اللهُمَّ إِنِّي قَدْ كُنْتُ أَخَافَكَ، فَأَنَا الْيَوْمَ أَرْجُوكَ، اللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي لَمْ أَكُنْ أُحِبُّ الدُّنْيَا وَطُولَ الْبَقَاءِ فِيهَا لِجَرْيِ الْأَنْهَارِ، وَلَا لِغَرْسِ الْأَشْجَارِ، وَلَكِنْ لَظَمَأِ الْهَوَاجِرِ، وَمُكَابَدَةِ السَّاعَاتِ، وَمُزَاحَمَةِ الْعُلَمَاءِ بِالرُّكَبِ عَنِ حِلَقِ الذِّكْرِ

[حلية الأولياء, (1/239)]

Welcome, O death! Welcome to a visitor who comes when he is most needed (ie death). Those who regret [at this time] do not succeed. O Allaah I have been from those who fear You, as for today I hope from you. O Allaah, you indeed know that I did not want to stay in this world for the flowing of rivers or for the planting of trees;instead I wanted to stay in order to struggle to pray deep into the night; in order to fast during the long hours of the day, while suffering the thirst of the intense midday heat; and in order to crowd around scholars in circles of dhikr (i.e. gatherings of knowledge).
