|1||To mourn our dead we gather here
In love and grief today;
Oh! Thou Whom we have held so dear,
Whom God hath called away–
A long farewell we say!
|2||By faith we hear the triumph song
That greets the ransomed soul,
Thy Savior’s love, through woe and wrong,
Hath led thee to thy goal,
Death’s waves between us roll!
|3||Yet through our tears a whisper sweet
Falls with a heavenly strain,
What though we part ’tis but to meet,
For joy comes after pain!
Until we meet again!
|4||Across Death’s dim and shadowy sea
Bright rays of sunrise move,
From that far Land where we would be–
The deathless Land of Love!
We meet again above. Amen.
