Christian Worship Weep Not For Me!

Why weep for those, frail child of woe,
Who’ve fled and left thee mourning here?
Triumphant o’er their latest foe,
They glory in a brighter sphere.

Weep not for them;-beside thee now
Perhaps they watch with guardian care,
And witness tears that idly flow
O’er those who bliss of angels share.

Or round their Father’s throne, above,
With raptured voice his praise they sing;
Or on his messages of love,
They journey with unwearied wing.

Weep, weep no more; their voices raise
The song of triumph high to God;
And wouldst thou join their song of praise,
Walk humbly in the path they trod.
