How still and peaceful is the grave,

Where life's vain tumults past,

Th' ap-pointed house by heaven's decree,

Receives us all at last.

The wicked there from troubling cease,

Their passions rage no more;

And there the weary pilgrim rests

From all the toils he bore.

All, levelled by the hand of death,

Lie sleeping in the tomb,

Till God in judgement call them forth,

To meet their final doom.
