"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5

1 Corinthians 15:18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.

1 Thessalonians 4:13 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
Asleep in Jesus! Blessed 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 singThat death has lost his venomed sting!
Asleep in Jesus! Peaceful rest,Whose waking is supremely blest;No fear, no woe, shall dim that hourThat manifests the Savior’s pow’r.
Asleep in Jesus! Oh, for meMay such a blessed refuge be!Securely shall my ashes lie,And wait the summons from on high.
Asleep in Jesus! Far from theeThy kindred and their graves may be;But there is still a blessed sleep,From which none ever wakes to weep.
