Asleep In Jesus Lyrics

By Margaret Mackay

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! Oh, how sweet, To be for such a slumber meet, With holy confidence to sing That death has lost his venomed sting! Asleep in Jesus! Peaceful rest, Whose waking is supremely blest; No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour That manifests the Savior’s pow’r. Asleep in Jesus! Oh, for me May such a blessed refuge be! Securely shall my ashes lie, And wait the summons from on high. Asleep in Jesus! Far from thee Thy kindred and their graves may be; But there is still a blessed sleep, From which none ever wakes to weep.
