O Lord, to whom the spirits live

O Lord, to whom the spirits live
of all the faithful passed away,
unto their path that brightness give
which shineth to the perfect day:
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.


Bless thou the dead that die in thee,
and make their painful labors cease,
O purge them from impurity,
and give them everlasting peace.
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.


In thy green, pleasant pastures feed
the sheep which thou hast summoned hence;
and by the still, cool waters lead
thy flock in loving providence.
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.


Heal thou the wounds of earthly strife,
pouring upon the faint thy balm,
the wearied with the toils of life
place in the breast of Abraham.
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.


How long, O holy Lord, how long
must we and they expectant wait
to hear the gladsome bridal song,
to see thee in thy royal state?
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.


O hearken, Savior, our their cry,
O rend the heavens and come down,
make up thy jewels speedily,
and set them in thy golden crown.
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.


Direct us with thine arm of might,
and bring us perfected with them
to dwell within thy city bright,
the heavenly Jerusalem.
Refrain:
Light Eternal, Jesus blest,
shine on them and grant them rest.
