	1. Asleep, in Jesus! Blessed sleep,
	From which none ever wakes to weep;
	A calm and undisturbed repose,
	Unbroken by the last of foes.
	2. Asleep in Jesus! Oh, how sweet
	To be for such a slumber meet,
	With holy confidence to sing
	That death has lost his venomed sting!
	3. Asleep tn Jesus! Peaceful rest,
	Whose waking is supremely blest
	No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour
	That manifests the Savior's power.
	4. Asleep In Jesus! Oh, for me
	May such a blissful refuge be!
	Securely shall my ashes lie
	And wait the summons from on high.
