1 Now lay we calmly in the grave
This form, whereof no doubt we have
That it shall rise again that day
In glorious triumph o'er decay.
2 And so to earth we hear entrust
What came from dust and turns to dust,
And from the dust shall surely rise
When the last trumpet fills the skies.
3 This soul forever lives in God
Whose grace His pardon hath bestowed,
Who through His Son redeemed us here
From bondage to both sin and fear.
4 So help us, Christ, our Hope in loss,
Thou hast redeemed us by Thy cross
From endless death and misery;
We praise, we bless, we worship Thee.
