O, lonely tomb in Moab's land,O, dark Bethpeor's hill,Speak to these curious hearts of ours,And teach them to be still!God hath His mysteries of grace —Ways that we cannot tell;He hides them deep, like the secret sleep,Of him He loved so well.Cecil Frances Alexander
By Nebo's lonely mountain, On this side Jordan's wave, In a vale in the land of Moab, There lies a lonely grave; But no man built that sepulcher, And no man saw it e'er, For the angels of God upturned the sod And laid the dead man there.Cecil Frances Alexander
