Lyrics

O Lord of life, where’er they be,
Safe in Thine own eternity,
Our dead are living unto Thee:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
All souls are Thine, and here or there
They rest within Thy sheltering care;
One providence alike they share:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Your word is true, Your ways are just;
Above the chanted “Dust to dust”
Shall rise our song of grateful trust:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Happy are they in God who rest,
No more by fear and doubt oppressed;
Living or dying, they are blest:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
