1 Go, happy soul: thy days are ended,
thy pilgrimage on earth below;
go, by angelic guard attended;
to God's own Paradise now go.
2 Go, Christ the Shepherd good befriend thee,
who gave his life thy soul to win;
'tis even he that shall defend thee,
thy going out and coming in.
3 Go forth in peace; farewell to sadness;
may rest in Paradise be thine;
in Jesus' presence there is gladness,
light everlasting on thee shine.
