XXIII. The departed Christian

1 Soldier of Christ adieu!
Thy conflicts here are past;
Thy Lord hath brought thee through,
And giv'n the crown at last,
Rejoice to wear the glorious prize,
Rejoice with God in paradise.

2 There all thy suff'rings cease,
There all thy griefs are o'er;
The pris'ner is at peace,
The mourner weeps no more;
From man's oppressive tyranny
Thou liv'st, thou liv'st for ever free.

3 Thou out of great distress
To thy reward art past;
Triumphant happiness,
And joys that always last:
Thanks be to God, who set thee free,
And gave thee final victory.
