The Sepulchres, how thick they stand
Halle - Hallelujah!
Through all the road on either hand!
Halle - Hallelujah!
And bursting in the starting sight
Halle - Hallelujah!
In ev’ry garden of delight!
Halle - Hallelujah!

Thither the winding alleys tend;
There all the flowr’y borders end
And forms, that charm'd the eye before,
Fragrance and music are no more.

Deep in that damp and silent cell
My fathers and my brethren dwell;
Beneath its broad and gloomy shade
My kindred, and my friends are laid.
