Not for the pious dead we weep

Not for the pious dead we weep

Tune: PEACE (Sieboth)

Full Text

1 Not for the dead in Christ we weep;
Their sorrows now are o'er'

Within that better home;
A while we weep and linger here,
Then follow to the tomb.

3 And though no vision'd dream of bliss
Nor trance of rapture show
Where, on the bosom of their God,
They rest from human woe;

4 Jesus! our shadowy path illume,
And teach the chasten'd mind
To welcome all that's left of good,
To all that's lost resign'd.
