740. O Lord, You Died That All Might Live

1 O Lord, you died that all might live
And rise to see the perfect day.
The fullness of your mercy give
To this our friend for whom we pray.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.

2 Lord, bless our friend who died in you,
As you have given hum/her release.
Enliven him/her since he/she was true
And give him/her everlasting peace.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.

3 In your green, pleasant pastures feed
The sheep that you have summoned hence;
And by the still, cool waters lead
Your flock in loving providence.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.

4 Direct us with your arm of might,
That with our friend we may all come
To dwell within your city bright,
Jerusalem, our heavenly home.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.
