Thou art gone to the grave but we will not deplore




Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee,
Though sorrows and darkness encompass the tomb;
The Saviour has passed through its portal before thee,
And the lamp of His love is thy guide through the gloom.


Thou art gone to the grave, we no longer behold thee,
Nor tread the rough path of the world by thy side;
But the wide arms of mercy are spread to enfold thee,
And sinners may hope, since the Sinless has died.


Thou art gone to the grave; and, its mansion forsaking,
Perhaps thy weak spirit in fear lingered long;
But the sunshine of Paradise beamed on thy waking,
And the sound which thou heardest was the seraphim’s song.


Thou art gone to the grave, but ‘twere wrong to deplore thee,
For God was thy ransom, thy guardian, and guide;
He gave thee, He took thee, and, He will restore thee;
And death has no sting, since the Saviour has died.


---Alternative verses---


Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee,
Since God was thy refuge, thy guardian, thy guide;
He gave thee, He took thee, and, He will restore thee;
And death has no sting, since the Saviour has died.


Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee,
Whose God was thy ransom, thy guardian, and guide;
He gave thee, He took thee, and, He will restore thee;
And death has no sting, since the Saviour has died.


Thou art gone to the grave; and, its mansion forsaking,
Perchance thy weak spirit in fear lingered long;
But the mild rays of Paradise beamed on thy waking,
And the sound which thou heardest was the seraphim’s song.


Thou art gone to the grave; and, its mansion forsaking,
Perchance thy tried spirit in doubt lingered long:
But the sunshine of glory beamed bright on thy waking,
And full on thine ear burst the seraphim’s song.


Thou art gone to the grave; and, its mansion forsaking,
Perchance thy tried spirit in doubt lingered long;
But the sunshine of heaven beamed bright on thy waking,
And the song which thou heardest was the seraphim’s song.
