517. Two Little Hands Are Sweetly Folded

1 Two little hands are sweetly folded
Upon a silent breast:
The little heart within has numbered
Its throbs and gone to rest.

Refrain:
Resting, resting,
Oh, how sweet!
Resting, resting,
Sweetly resting.

2 Two little eyes are closed forever
To earth’s unholy sight,
Two little cherub wings now hover
In heaven’s golden light. [Refrain]

3 Two little feet have ceased to travel
Upon the shores of time;
A little gem released from trouble
Has gone above to shine. [Refrain]

4 Oh, what a comfort, dear Redeemer,
Thy grace and love hath giv’n,
That when life’s winter day is ended,
We’ll meet our child in heav’n. [Refrain]
