Verse 1
`Servant of God, well done
From all your labours, rest;
Thou has fought and Thou has triumphed
Enter Thy Master's joy,`
The call came in the night,
He raised himself to hear,
The arrow of death entered in,
He fell, but did not fear.

Verse 2
The midnight cry went forth,
`Arise to meet Thy God`
He woke, and saw his commander,
Through prayer and in faith
His soul rose up at once,
Left this body of clay;
When morn broke, this body of clay
Was found lying down dead.

Verse 3
The pangs of death is past,
Cares and distress are o'er,
The days of fighting are all gone,
His heart has found real peace;
Soldiers of Christ, `well done`
Keep singing songs of joy;
Take thy rest in Thy Saviour's breast,
And rest eternally.
