553. Let the Little One Sleep

1 That little form before us
In death’s embrace,
Sweet angel face,
Has left a vacant place.

Refrain:
Let the little one sleep,
Let the little one sleep,
It is free from this world of care;
The Master has come,
And called it home,
It is resting over there.

2 Our darling child is sleeping,
It’s left this shore,
Forevermore,
Its suff’ring days are o’er. [Refrain]

3 Our little one is living
Among the blest
In sweeter rest;
Our Father knoweth best. [Refrain]

4 Our child has gone to glory;
Let us prepare
To meet it there,
Eternal bliss to share. [Refrain]
