Text Based On I Thessalonians Chapter 4 (KJV)
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

ASLEEP IN JESUS
Asleep in Jesus! blessèd sleep,
From which none ever wakes to weep;
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.
Asleep in Jesus! oh, how sweet-
To be for such a slumber meet!
With holy confidence to rest-
In hope of being ever blest.
Asleep in Jesus! Peaceful rest,
Whose waking is supremely blest;
No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour-
That manifests the Saviour’s power.
Asleep in Jesus! Soon to rise-
When the last trump shall rend the skies;
Then burst the fetters of the tomb,
And wake in full, immortal bloom.
