Thou art gone to the grave and
its mansions forsaking,
Perhaps thy tried spirit in doubt lingered long,
But the sunshine of heaven beam-'d bright on thy waking.
And the song that thou heards't
was the seraphims song.
Thou art gone to the grave but
t'were wrong to deplore thee,
When God was thy ransome, thy
guardian and guide.
He gave thee, he took thee, and
soon will restore thee,
Where death hath no sting since the
Saviour hath died.

Have foresaken us and gone.
