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 time When we go in to prayer.
They cannot hear our footsteps come, They do not see us pass; They cannot feel the warm bright sun That shines upon the grass.
They do not hear when the great bell Is ringing overhead; They cannot rise and come to church With us, for they are dead.
But we believe a day shall come When 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 best Lie in their churchyard bed, We must not cry too bitterly Over the happy dead;
Because, for our dear Saviorís sake, Our sins are all forgivín; And Christians only fall asleep To wake again in Heavín.
