Why should our hearts in sorrow
When God recalls his own.
And bids them leave a world of woe
For an Immortal crown?
Is not e'en death a gain to those
Whose life to God was given?
Gladly to earth their eyes they close
To open them in heaven.
Their tolls are past; their work 13
And they are fully blest!
They fought the light, the victory's
And entered into rest.
Then let our sorrows cease to flow,
God has recalled his own.
But let our hearts in every woe
Still say, "Thy will be done."
