Rest Gently, Ye Suffering Servant

Rest gently, ye suffering servant,

You suffer no more.

The walls of the church

mourn your passing with moans,

groans amid quiet smiles.

Rest gently, ye suffering servant,

You suffer no more.

 

You are gone, ye good Samaritan,

Gone from our midst.

Sniffles amid sadness,

cries amid sweet memories,

your face is clear in our anguish.

You are gone, ye good Samaritan,

Gone from our midst.

 

You are remembered, ye good Samaritan,

By all who knew you.

Fond smiles amid memory’s snapshots,

Your spirit fills the halls

of the church and our lives,

You are remembered, ye good Samaritan,

By all who knew you.

 

Rest gently, ye suffering servant,

You suffer no more.

You were our caretaker,

Now the Lord is yours,

And you are his.

Rest gently, ye suffering servant

You suffer no more.
