Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Christ shall guide me thro’ the gloom;
Down he’ll send some heav’nly convoy,
To escort my spirit home.
O hallelujah, how I love my Savior!
O hallelujah, that I do!
Hallelujah, how I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love him, too.
See the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream!
Sweet responses still repeating:
Jesus, Jesus! is their theme.
Worlds of light and crowns of glory,
Far above yon azure sky,
Tho’ by faith I now explore you,
I’ll enjoy you soon on high.
