"Weep not that his life is over,
Weep not that his race is run,
God grant that we may rest as calmly
When our work like his is done.
Till then we would yield with gladness
Our treasure with Him to keep,
And rejoice in the blest assurance
He giveth His loved ones sleep.
Beautiful toiler, they work is done,
Beautiful soul into glory gone,
Beautiful life with thy crown well won,
God giveth thee rest."
