There is a calm for those who weep A rest for




There is a calm for those who weep,
A rest for weary pilgrims found;
They safely lie and sweetly sleep,
|: Low in the ground. :|


The storms that sweep the wintry sky
No more disturb their deep repose,
Than summer eveningís latest sigh
|: That shuts the rose. :|


I long to lay this painful head
And aching heart beneath the soil;
And slumber in that dreamless bed
|: From all my toil. :|


There is a calm for those who weep,
A rest for weary pilgrims found,
And while the mouldering ashes sleep,
|: Low in the ground,- :|


Thy soul renewed by grace divine,
In Godís own image, freed from clay,
In Heavenís eternal sphere shall shine,
|: A star of day. :|


The sun is but a spark of fire,
A transient meteor in the sky,
The soul, immortal as its Sire,
|: Shall never die! :|

The storm that wracks the winter sky
No more disturbs their deep repose,
Than summer eveningís latest sigh
|: That shuts the rose. :|


I soon shall lay this painful head
And aching heart beneath the soil;
And slumber in that dreamless bed
|: From all my toil. :|


Thy soul, of original divine,
Godís glorious image, freed from clay,
In Heavenís eternal sphere shall shine,
|: A star of day. :|
