|Text:||Lord Jesus, who, our souls to save|
|Tune:||ERHALT UNS, HERR, BEI DEINEM WORT|
1 Lord Jesus, who, our souls to save,
Didst rest and slumber in the grave,
Now grant us all in Thee to rest,
And here to live as seems Thee best.
2 Give us the strength, the dauntless faith,
That Thou hast purchased with Thy Death,
And lead us to that glorious place,
Where we shall see the Father's face.
3 O Lamb of God! who once wast slain,
We thank Thee for that bitter pain.
Let us partake Thy Death, that we
May enter into Life with Thee.
