BLEST ARE THE DEAD THAT DIE IN CHRIST
(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear #497 CM)
Blest are the dead that die in Christ,
For they are with Him now!
The glories they now have in heav'n
No mortal here can know.
Soon as the ransomed soul is freed
From this poor, mortal frame,
Before we know it's gone, it is
With Christ, praising His name!
Faith tries, but here cannot quite see
The things God has prepared
For those He chose, redeemed and called,
Who now in heav'n appear.
We'll now rejoice this much to know -
They are completely blest!
Freed from all sorrow, pain and sin,
With Jesus Christ they rest!
Our friends their Savior fully see
And all His glory share!
Let us be foll'wers of the Lamb;
And we will join them there!
