In sure and certain hope

In sure and certain hope
we stand beside this grave
and even now, O Son of God,
we know you strong to save.
Our dead are in your hands
who died that we might live,
who rose triumphant over death
an endless life to give.

2. In sure and certain hope
we leave him/her in your care
and wait in hope your promised day
when we his/her joy shall share.
Beyond our lonely tears
we see your shining throne:
a rainbow fills our trembling gaze-
your covenant with your own!

3. In sure and certain hope,
Good Shepherd of our dead,
we lift our grieving hearts to you,
our ever-living head.
On your unchanging word
we rest our faith anew:
in sure and certain hope, O Christ,
we yield our dead to you.
