Rest in peace, sweet Lord of mine.
Your trial at last is over.
Rest in peace, sweet Lord of mine.
Your wounds are gone forever.

Rest in peace, sweet Lord of mine.
You came and did your best.
Rest in peace, sweet Lord of mine.
You came and passed the test.

Live in glory, dear Christ above,
With your Father at your side.
Live in glory, dear Christ above,
With your Spirit in me abide.

Live my soul in Christ alone.
Praise His name with holy songs.
Live my soul in Christ alone.
He died to cleanse my wrongs.

Rest in peace all those who thirst.
For our Lord is risen indeed.
Rest in peace all those who thirst.
For our Lord our needs will feed.

Rest in peace we sinners should.
For Christ has set us free.
Rest in peace we sinners should.
For Christ died upon the tree.

The repetition in the verses is very effective and makes the poem easy to read. The truths contained in it are eternal.
