Original text and translations
He watching over Israel,
Slumbers not, nor sleeps.
Should'st thou, walking in grief, languish,
He will quicken thee.
(Psalm 121: 4, 138: 7)
O for the wings, for the wings of a dove.
Far away, far away would I rove.
In the wilderness, build me a nest,
And remain there for ever at rest.
(Psalm 55: 6-7)
Then shall the righteous shine forth,
As the sun in their heavenly Father's realm.
Joy on their heads shall be for everlasting,
And all sorrow and mourning
Shall flee away for ever.
(Matthew 13: 43; Isaiah 51: 11)
