DUST TO DUST




Calm on the bosom of thy God,
Fair spirit, rest thee now!
E’en while with us thy footstep trod,
His seal was on thy brow.


Dust, to its narrow house beneath!
Soul, to its home on high!
They that have seen thy look in death
No more may fear to die.


Lone are the paths, and sad the hours,
Since thy meek spirit’s gone;
But, O, a brighter home than ours,
In heaven, is now thine own!

Dust, to its narrow house beneath!
Soul, to its place on high!
They that have seen thy look in death
No more may fear to die.


Lone are the paths, and sad the hours,
Whence thy meek smile is gone;
But, O, a brighter home than ours,
In heaven, is now thine own!


Lone are its paths, and sad the hours,
Whence thy meek smile is gone;
But, O, a brighter home than ours,
In heaven, is now thine own!
