Blessed, they that die

Blessed Dead, Short Meter (Revelation 14:13; 21:3-4), written January 17, 2020

“…Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth…”

1. A voice from heaven said
John, write this in the word;
The Spirit says—yea, God reveals—
And this is that he heard.

2. Blessed they are that die
If dying in the Lord;
At last they from their labors rest
And pass to their reward.

3. From sin and sorrow free—
There is no weeping there;
God’s tender hand shall wipe away.
The penitential tear.

4. There’ll be no sorrow there
From pain and death set free; 
The former things are passed away
They shall his people be.
