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

1 O Lord of life, where’er they be,
safe in thine own eternity,
our dead areliving unto thee.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 All souls are thine, and here or there,
they rest within thy sheltering care;
Ooe 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 song 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!
