I fall asleep in Jesus' woundsAuthor: Paul Eber; Translator: Catherine Winkworth
Tune: VATER UNSER
Published in 16 hymnals
1 I fall asleep in Jesus' wounds;
There pardon for my sins abounds.
Yea, Jesus' blood and righteousness
My jewels are, my glorious dress.
In these before my God I'll stand
When I shall reach the heav'nly land.
2 With peace and joy I now depart;
God's child I am with all my heart.
I thank thee, death, thou leadest me
To that true life where I would be.
So cleansed by Christ, I fear not death.
Lord Jesus, strengthen Thou my faith.
