604. S. M. Ch. Psalmody. The Peaceful Death of the Righteous.
1 O, for the death of those
Who slumber in the Lord!
O, be like theirs my last repose,
Like theirs my last reward!
2 Their ransomed spirits soar,
On wings of faith and love,
To meet the Saviour they adore,
And reign with him above.
3 With us their names shall live
Through long-succeeding years,
Embalmed with all our hearts can give, --
Our praises and our tears.
