Lord of All Hopefulness
(Sung to the tune of Melita a.k.a. Eternal Father, Strong to Save)
O Lord, you died that all might live
And rise to see the perfect day.
The fullness of your mercy give
To this our friend for whom we pray.
O Lamb of God, Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.
Lord, bless our friend who died in you.
As you have given him/her release,
So raise him/her up, your servant true,
And give him/her everlasting peace. [Refrain]
In green and pleasant pastures feed
The sheep that you have summoned hence;
And by the still, cool waters lead
Your flock in loving providence. [Refrain]
Perfect us, Lord of pow'r and might,
That, with our friend, we may all come
To dwell within your city bright,
Jerusalem, our heav'nly home. [Refrain]
