L.M.


1
LORD, though Thy saints be laid to rest,
In Thee they have a portion blest;
Thy precious blood the purchase price
To be with Thee in paradise.
2
"Asleep through Jesus" - blessèd state!
What power from Thee can separate?
Not death nor life, not land nor sea,
Can come between Thy saints and Thee.
3
"With Christ" - how better far the lot -
Where sin and sorrow enter not!
Our hearts anticipate the day
When every tear is wiped away;
4
When those asleep shall wakened be
To put on immortality,
And we with them shall rise to share
That rapturous meeting in the air!

Mrs. H.A. Berg
