Lyrics

Verse 1
Asleep in Jesus! blessed sleep,
From which none ever wakes to weep!
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.

Verse 2
Asleep in Jesus! O how sweet
To be for such a slumber meet!
With holy confidence to sing,
That death has lost his venomed sting.

Verse 3
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.

Verse 4
Asleep in Jesus! O for me
May such a blissful refuge be!
Securely shall my ashes lie,
Waiting the summons from on high.
