Hymn/Song Information

Take comfort Christians when your friend




Take comfort, Christians, when your friends
in Jesus fall asleep;
Their better being never ends;
why then dejected weep?


Why inconsolable, as those
to whom no hope is givín?
Death is the messenger of peace,
and calls the soul to heavín.


As Jesus died, and rose again
victorious from the dead;
So his disciples rise, and reign
with their triumphant Head.


The time draws nigh, when from the clouds
Christ shall with shouts descend,
And the last trumpetís awful voice
the heavíns and earth shall rend.


Then they who live shall changed be,
and they who sleep shall wake;
The graves shall yield their ancient charge,
and earthís foundations shake.


The saints of God, from death set free,
with joy shall mount on high;
The heavínly hosts with praises loud
shall meet them in the sky,


Together to their Fatherís house
with joyful hearts they go;
And dwell for ever with the Lord,
beyond the reach of woe.


A few short years of evil past,
we reach the happy shore,
where death-divided friends at last
shall meet, to part no more.
