Asleep In Jesus

Asleep in Jesus! Blessèd sleep,

From which none ever wakes to weep;

A calm and undisturbed repose,

Unbroken by the last of foes.

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!

Asleep in Jesus! Peaceful rest,

Whose waking is supremely blessed;

No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour

That manifests the Savior's power.

Asleep in Jesus! Oh, for me

May such a blessèd refuge be!

Securely shall my ashes lie

And wait the summons from on high.

Asleep in Jesus! time nor space

Debars this precious "hiding place";

On Indian plains or Lapland snows

Believers find the same respose.

Asleep in Jesus! Far from thee

Thy kindred and their graves may be;

But there is still a blessèd sleep,

From which none ever wakes to weep.
