Sister! Thou has sunk to rest,
Evermore shalt thou be blest;
All thy pains, thy grief's are o'er.
Trouble shall be thine no more!
Through the valley lone and drear,
Death's dark shadow hov'ring near.
Leaning on no mortal arm.
Thou didst pass and feared no harm.
Shadowy forms were all around,
But that vain was hallowed ground,
For the Comforter was there
Making it both bright and fair!
Fare thee well! poor pain-racked soul:
Perfect love hath made thee whole:
On, so peaceful is they sleep,
Tis almost a sin to weep.
Dry we then each tearful eye,
Check, O check, each rising sigh.
Our dead sister is at rest,
Evermore shall she be blest.
