Hymn/Song Information

We lay thee in the silent tomb Sweet blossom of




We lay thee in the silent tomb,
Sweet blossom of the day;
We just began to view thy bloom,
When thou wert called away.


Friendship and love have done their last,
And now can do no more;
The bitterness of death is past,
And all thy sufferings o’er.


Thy gentle Spirit passed away,
‘Mid pain the most severe;
So great we could not wish thy stay,
A moment longer here.


Oh, who could wish thy longer stay,
In such a world as this;
Since thou hast gained the realms of day.
And pure, undying bliss?
