Berean Christadelphian Hymns

H176

SONG NUMBER H176

 Oh! weep not for the dead,
The sleepers of the Lord!
Each in his silent bed
Awaits the quickening Word.

Oh! weep not for the dead,
Who knew the joyful sound:
The members of the Head
Repose in holy ground.

Oh! weep not for the dead,
Whose works have gone before;
They wrestled, fought and bled,
To live for evermore.

Oh! weep not for the dead,
The meek ones of the earth,
They slumber without dread,
In hope of Spirit birth.

Oh! weep not for the dead
Of Abraham's royal race;
They shall by Yahweh led,
Enter the Holy place.

Then weep not for the dead,
The blessed of the Lord,
But in their footsteps tread
And be at peace with God.
