Them which sleep in Jesus.
1 Thess. 4:14.

Mrs. McKay.

Asleep in Jesus! Blesséd sleep

From which none ever wakes to weep;

A calm and undisturbed repose,

Unbroken by the last of foes.

2 Asleep in Jesus! O how sweet

To be for such a slumber meet!

With holy confidence to sing,

That death has lost its venomed sting.

3 Asleep in Jesus! peaceful rest,

Whose waking is supremely blest:

No fear, no woe, shall dim the hour

That manifests the Saviour’s power.

4 Asleep in Jesus! O for me

May such a blissful refuge be:

Securely shall my ashes lie,

And wait the summons from on high.

5 Asleep in Jesus! time nor space

Affects this precious hiding-place:

On Indian plains, or Lapland snows,

Believers find the same repose.

6 Asleep in Jesus! far from thee

Thy kindred and their graves may be:

But thine is still a blesséd sleep,

which none ever wake to weep.
