258 ADORO TE L. M. 61.
Ko= 100) God of the liv - ing, in Whose eyes Un-veil'd Thy whole cre- a - tion lies,
All souls are Thine; we must not say That those are dead who pass a - way;
From this our world of flesh set free, We know them living un- to Thee. A-men.
Fa - ther, grant this wea - ried one
Rest for - ev
er more! Amen.
2 When the strife of sin is stilled,
4 When the heart by sorrow tried When the foe within is killed,
Feels at length its throbs subside, Be Thy gracious word fulfilled,
Bring us, where all tears are dried, Peace for evermore!
Joy for evermore! 3 When the darkness melts away
5 When for vanished days we yearn, At the breaking of the day,
Days that never can return,
Teach us in Thy love to learn
Love for evermore!
When the grave must claim its own,
(d=72) A-sleep in Je - sus! bless- ed sleep, From which none ev - er wakes to weep;
A calm and un-dis-turb'd re-pose, Un-broken by the last of foes.
2 Asleep in Jesus! oh, how sweet
To be for such a slumber meet;
That death hath lost its painful sting! 3 Asleep in Jesus! peaceful rest,
Whose waking is supremely blest;
4 Asleep in Jesus! oh, for me
May such a blissful refuge be!
Waiting the summons from on high. 5 Asleep in Jesus! far from thee
Thy kindred and their graves may be;
2 The light of truth to us display,
And make us know and choose Thy way;
3 Lead us to Christ, the living Way,
Nor let us from His precepts stray;
4 Lead us to heaven, that we may share
Fullness of joy forever there:
