1. Sleep thy last sleep, Free from care and sor - row; Rest, where none weep,
3 Though we may mourn
Those in life the dearest, They shall return,
Christ, when Thou appearest!
Comfort those now weeping,

in Thy gracious keep - ing Leave we now Thy serv-ant sleep
There the tears of earth are dried;
There its hidden things are clear; There the work of life is tried
By a juster Judge than here. Father! in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
There no more the powers of hell
Can prevail to mar their peace; Christ the Lord shall guard them well,
He Who died for their release. Father! in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
3 There the sinful souls that turn
To the cross their dying eyes, All the love of Christ shall learn
At His feet in Paradise. Father! in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
5 “Earth to earth, and dust to dust:”
Calmly now the words we say; Leaving him to sleep in trust,
Till the Resurrection-day. Father! in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping. Amen.
If Thou callest to the Cross,
And its shadow come, Turning all my gain to loss,
Shrouding heart and home; Let me think how Thy dear Son
To His glory came, And in deepest woe pray on, “Glorify Thy Name." Amen.
Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that glad day;
