Oh, How Blest Are Ye Whose Tolls are Ended

Author: Henry W. Longfellow; Simon Dach Meter: 10.10.5.10 Appears in 17 hymnals Matching Instances: 5 First Line: Oh, how blest are ye whose toils are ended Lyrics: 1 Oh, how blest are they whose toils are ended, Who thro' death have unto God ascended! Ye have arisen From the cares which keep us still in prison. 2 We are still as in a dungeon living, Still oppressed with sorrow and misgiving; Our undertakings Are but toils and troubles and heartbreakings. 3 Ye meanwhile are in their chambers sleeping, Quiet, and set free from all our weeping; No cross or sadness There can hinder their untroubled gladness. 4 Christ has wiped away their tears forever; Ye have that for which we still endeavor; To you are chanted Songs that ne'er to mortal ears were granted. 5 Ah, who would, then, not depart with gladness To inherit heaven for earthly sadness? Who here would languish Longer in bewailing and in anguish? 6 Come, 0 Christ, and loose the chains that bind us; Lead us forth and cast this world behind us. With Thee, th'Anointed, Finds the soul its joy and rest appointed. Amen. Topics: The Last Things Death and Burial Scripture: Revelation 14:13 Used With Tune: O WIE SELIG
