His spirit hath flown to its rest,
Afar from our sorrowing clod;
To the bright, happy land of the blest,
And the smiles of its glorious God.
He lingered a season below.
But to wash from his spirit the stain;
Then soar'd from our valley of woe,
To the far heights of glory again.
He hath fled to the mansions above,
He hath drank of the fountains of love,
And found the blood-ransomed throng;
And joined in the seraphim's song.
He hath gone to the land of his birth,
Where the anthems of holiness rise;
He wearied of dwelling on earth,
And returned to his home in the skies.
