Thou Lord of life and deathAuthor: Anna B. Hoppe
Tune: O GOTT, DU FROMMER GOTT (Meiningen)
Published in 4 hymnals
1 Thou Lord of life and death,
Blest Son of God the Father,
Jesus, in humble faith
Before Thy throne we gather;
Thy Spirit bids us come
In fervant prayer to Thee,
O bless Thy Christendom
Now and eternally.
2 Thou speakest but a word,
And lo! the dead awaken.
Why should we sorrow, Lord,
When those we love are taken
From this drear vale of tears
To realms of bliss above?
Hush Thou our griefs and fears,
Thou Fount of boundless love.
3 When judgment trumpets wake
All who in death are sleeping,
To Salem's mansions take
The saved in Thy love's keeping.
When at Thy blest "Arise!"
We greet Thee, risen King,
The realms beyond the skies
With endless praise shall ring.
