Why Should We Weep


Why should we weep, for those who sleep,
On Jesus’ loving breast!
Far from life’s din; far from earth’s sin,
In paradise they rest!

Chorus:
In arms of love, in realms above,
God gives His loved ones sleep!
And those who rest on Jesus’ breast,
He will securely keep.

Where naught alarms, where naught e’er harms,
‘Neath skies forever fair;
By waters bright, in robes of white,
They rest securely there! [Chorus]

There angels dwell, and anthems swell
The joy that cannot cease!
They know no night; God is their Light,
No grief can mar their peace! [Chorus]
