71. Comfort in Affliction

1 We may sleep, but not forever,
There will be a glorious dawn;
We shall meet to part, no, never,
On the resurrection morn.
From the desert and the plain,
From the valley and the mountain,
Countless throngs shall rise again.

Chorus:
We may sleep, but not forever,
There will be a glorious dawn;
We shall meet to part, no, never,
On the resurrection morn.
From the deepest caves of ocean,
From the desert and the plain,
From the valley and the mountain,
Countless throngs shall rise again.

2 When we see a precious blossom,
That we tended with such care,
Rudely taken from our bosom,
How our aching hearts despair.
Round the silent grave we linger
Till the setting sun is low,
Feeling all our hopes have perished
With the flower we cherished so.
[Chorus]

3 We may sleep, but not forever,
In the lone and silent grave;
Blessed be the Lord that taketh,
Blessed be the Lord that gave.
In the bright, eternal city
Death can never, never come;
In his own good time he'll call us
From our rest to home, sweet home.
[Chorus]
