Hymn/Song Information

Unveil thy bosom faithful tomb Take this




Unveil thy bosom, faithful tomb,
Take this new treasure to thy trust,
|: And give these sacred relics room
To seek a slumber in the dust. :|


Nor pain, nor grief, nor anxious fear
Invades thy bounds, no mortal woes,
|: Can reach the lovely sleeper here,
And angels watch her soft repose. :|


So Jesus slept; Godís dying Son
Passed through the grave, and blessed the bed:
|: Rest here, fair saint, till from His throne
The morning break and pierce the shade. :|


Break from His throne, illustrious morn!
Attend, O earth! His sovereign Word:
|: Restore thy trust: a glorious form
She must ascend to meet her Lord! :|

Nor pain, nor grief, nor anxious fear
Invades thy bounds, no mortal woes,
|: Can reach the lovely sleeper here,
While angels watch its soft repose. :|


So Jesus slept; Godís dying Son
Passed through the grave, and blessed the bed:
|: Then Rest, dear saint, till from His throne
The morning break and pierce the shade. :|


Break from His throne, illustrious morn!
Attend, O earth! His sovereign Word:
|: Restore thy trust: the glorious form
Shall then arise, to meet the Lord! :|
