Oh, for me May such a blissful refuge be! Securely shall my ashes lie, Waiting the summons from on high. 5 Asleep in Jesus! far from thee Thy kindred and their graves may be; But there is still a blessèd sleep, From which none ever wakes to weep.

Which shall not through endless ages, Pass away! 7 On that happy Easter morning All the graves their dead restore, Father, sister, child and mother, Meet once more. 8 To that brightest of all meetings, Bring us, Jesus Christ, at last; To Thy cross, through death and judgment, Holding fast. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: RESURRECTION MORNING

Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: MEINHOLD

Sing, with all the sons of glory

Author: W. J. Irons Hymnal: The Church Hymnal #124 (1898) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: Burial of the Dead; Burial of the Dead Lyrics: 1 Sing, with all the sons of glory, Sing the resurrection song! Death and sorrow, earth's dark story, To the "former days" belong. Even now the dawn is breaking, Soon the night of time shall cease, And, in God's own likeness waking, Man shall know eternal peace. 2 Oh, what glory, far exceeding All that eye has yet perceived! Holiest hearts, for ages pleading, Never that full joy conceived. God has promised, Christ prepares it, There on high our welcome waits; Every humble spirit shares it; Christ has passed the eternal gates. 3 "Life eternal!" Heaven rejoices; Jesus lives Who once was dead; Join, O man, the deathless voices; Child of God lift up thy head. Patriarchs from distant ages, Saints all longing for their heaven, Prophets, psalmists, seers, and sages, All await the glory given. 4 "Life eternal!" Oh, what wonders Crowd on faith--what joy unknown, When, amidst earth's closing thunders, Saints shall stand before the throne! Oh! to enter that bright portal, See that glowing firmament, Know, with Thee, O God immortal, "Jesus Christ, Whom Thou hast sent!" Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: VITA ÆTERNA
