Asleep in Jesus! blessed sleep!
From which none ever wakes to weep;
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.
Asleep in Jesus! peaceful rest!
Whose waking is supremely blest!
No fear, no woe shall dim that hour
That manifests the Saviour’s pow’r.
Asleep in Jesus! oh for me
May such a blissful refuge be!
Securely shall my ashes lie,
Waiting the summons from on high.
