724 (P.M.) J. E. Goodson, Jr.

We shall sleep, but not forever —

We shall rest beneath the trees;

We shall wake to live forever

In the land where Jesus is;

Then weep not for me,

Then weep not for me,

For I'm going o'er death's river,

And you soon will follow me.

Yes, I feel death's chills upon me,

And my friends are all in tears,

But my Saviour still upholds me,

And has banished all my fears:

Then weep not for me, &c.

Oh, the grave lies cold before me,

And we're called awhile to part,

Yet his words, "I'll never leave thee,"

Live — still live within my heart:

Then weep not for me, &c.

Oh, to meet again in heaven,

What a blessing it will be!

There with all our sins forgiven,

And from death forever free:

Then weep not for me, &c.
