1 Despair not, O heart, in thy sorrow,
From God's own assurances borrow
The promise that Jesus has given:
That life has in death its beginning.
2 As seed in the springtime is planted,
And rests in the earth until granted
God's blessing of warmth and of showers,
And blossoms in leaflets and flowers;
3 So we, amid sorrow and weeping,
Committed, O earth, to thy keeping,
Shall, given new life and perfection,
Come forth in the great resurrection. A-men.
4 O Lord, at thy coming in glory,
When all shall bow down and adore thee,
Then forth from the tomb's open portal,
O lead us to mansions immortal.
