1 O Lord of life, where’er they be,
Safe in Your own eternity,
Now live Your children gloriously.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 All souls You call, both here or there,
Do rest within Your sheltering care;
One providence alike they share:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 Your word is true, Your ways are just;
Above the chanted “Dust to dust”
Shall rise our song of grateful trust:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 Happy are they in God who rest,
No more by fear and doubt oppressed;
Living or dying, they are blest:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
