591. 8s. & 7s. M. Bap. Memorial. Burial of a Christian Brother.
1 Brother, rest from sin and sorrow;
Death is o'er and life is won;
On thy slumber dawns no morrow:
Rest; thine earthly race is run.
2 Brother, wake; the night is waning;
Endless day is round thee poured;
Enter thou the rest remaining
For the people of the Lord.
3 Brother, wake; for he who loved thee, --
He who died that thou mightst live, --
He who graciously approved thee, --
Waits thy crown of joy to give.
4 Fare thee well; though woe is blending
With the tones of earthly love,
Triumph high and joy unending
Wait thee in the realms above.
