Verse 1.
Peaceful and calm lies the city After the toil of the day,
Swiftly the rising river Flows on its treacherous way,
Then like a bolt from the blue, Grim death collects his fares,
The flood takes the ones we love true
And the victory is theirs.

Chorus
Safe in the kingdom above Safe with the Father we love,
Far from the strife and the pain of life To peace forever more.
Safe in their Heavenly rest,
Safe with Him who knows best,
And each heart's bow'd in pray'r For those who perished there,
At the mercy of the flood. flood.

Verse 2.
Picture the sister and brother Saying farewell and goodbye,
Picture the babe and mother Gladly to save if she'd die,
Then when the danger has passed The ones we love so dear
Free from their sorrow at last,
In our memories live here.
