Why then, Wliy then dejected weep?
'2 Why incoDsolable as those.
To whom no hope is given?
Death is the messenger of peace.
And calls the soul to heaven.
3 As Jesus died and rose again.
Victorious from the grave,
So his disciples rise and reign ,
With their triumphant head.
4 The time draws nigh when from the clouds
Christ shall with shouts descend.
And the last trumpet's awfull voice
The heavens and earth shall rend.
5 Then they who live shall changed be,
And they who sleep shall wake;
The graves shall yield their ancient charge
And dust to life awake.
6 The saints of God, from death set free,
With joy shall mount on high;
The heavenly lioat with praises loud
Shall meet them iu the sky.
7 Together to their Father's house
With joyful hearts they go;
And dwell for ever with the Lord ,
Beyond the reach of woe.
8 A few short years of evil past,
They rcach the happy shore,
Where death-divided friends at last,
Shall meet to part no more.
