1In this hour of rejoicing once more we remember
The souls of the faithful that here sought the Lord,
They have passed from the earth, but we do not forget them,
They fought the good fight, they receive their reward.
2Then to Him do we offer this psalm of thanksgiving,
The source of all life and all heavenly grace,
Who remembereth the number of them that are faithful,
Who counteth all those that are seeking His face.
3In the day of temptation they, steadfast and constant,
Looked forth to the glory that should be revealed,
Amid all tribulation they patiently waited
For Him by Whose coming all grief should be healed
4Then to Him Who enthroned, liveth ever and ever,
Forevermore reigning, forevermore blest,
Who has guided His own by a way that they knew not,
To Him let all glory, all praise be addressed. Amen.
John4:36-3836 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
