5106. O Lord of Life, Where'er They Be

1. O Lord of life, where’er they be,
Safe in Thine own eternity,
Our dead are living unto Thee:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. All souls are Thine, and here or there
They rest within Thy sheltering care;
One providence alike they share:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. Thy Word is true, Thy ways are just;
Above the requiem, Dust to dust,
Shall rise our psalm of grateful trust:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4. O happy they in God who rest,
No more by fear and doubt oppressed,
Living or dying, they are blest:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
