God of the living in whose eyes Unveiled




God of the living, in Whose eyes
Unveiled Thy whole creation lies,
All souls are Thine, we must not say
That those are dead who pass away;
From this our world of flesh set free,
We know them living unto Thee.


Released from
earthly toil and strife,
With Thee is hidden still their life;
Thine are their thoughts,
their works, their powers,
All Thine, and yet most truly ours;
For well we know, where’er they be,
Our dead are living unto Thee.


Not spilt like water on the ground,
Not wrapped in
dreamless sleep profound,
Not wandering in unknown despair,
Beyond Thy voice,
Thine Arm, Thy care;
Not left to lie like fallen tree—
Not dead, but living, unto Thee.


Thy Word is true, Thy will is just;
To Thee we leave them,
Lord, in trust;
And bless Thee for
the love which gave
Thy Son to fill a human grave;
That none might fear
that world to see
Where all are living unto Thee.


O Breather into man of breath,
O Holder of the keys of death,
O Giver of the life within,
Save us from death, the death of sin,
That body, soul, and spirit be
Forever living unto Thee.


---Alternative verses---


O Giver unto man of breath,
O Holder of the keys of death,
O Quickener of the life within,
Save us from death, the death of sin,
That body, soul, and spirit be
Forever living unto Thee.
