HE IS NOT HERE
He is not here in the cold damp ground,
Away from the friends and home,
He is not here though here is the place
Where we left him all alone.
He is not here for his soul took wings,
And soared to heights unfurled,
To that blessed eternal home above,
Reserved for God's own pearls.
He is not here:  That Heavenly choir
Boasts one more voice to sing,
O grave where is thy victory?
O death where is thy sting?
He is not here:  To grief I say
Don't haunt me, take your leave,
The arms of Jesus hold him safe,
Oh, glorious thought!  Sweet peace!
He is not here for he is there,
Happier he could not be,
Basking in the sunshine of God's love,
For all eternity!
