Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee;
Though sorrows and darkness encompass the tomb.
The savior has passed through its portals before thee,
And the lamp of his love is thy guide through the doom.
Thou'rt gone to the grave, but ‘twere wrong to deplore thee,
When God was thy ransom, thy guardian and guide;
He gave thee, and took thee, and he will restore thee,
Where death has no sting, since the Savior has died."
