"Within the churchyard, side by side,Are many long low graves;And some have stones set over them,On some the green grass waves.Full many a little Christian child,Woman, and man, lies there;And we pass near them every timeWhen we go in to prayer.They cannot hear our footsteps come,They do not see us pass;They cannot feel the warm bright sunThat shines upon the grass.They do not hear when the great bellIs ringing overhead;They cannot rise and come to churchWith us, for they are dead.But we believe a day shall comeWhen all the dead will rise,When they who sleep down in the grass,Will ope again their eyes.For Christ our Lord was buried once,He died and rose again,He conquered death, He left the grave;And so will Christian men.So when the friends we love the bestLie in their churchyard bed,We must not cry too bitterlyOver the happy dead;Because, for our dear Savior's sake,Our sins are all forgiven;And Christians only fall asleepTo wake again in Heaven."--Cecil F. Alexander--WITHIN THE CHURCHYARD, SIDE BY SIDE.1848.
