Text

My life's a shade,
My days apace decline;
My Lord is life,
He'll raise my dust again;
Sweet truth to me!
I shall arise and with these eyes,
My Saviour shall I see.

My peaceful grave
Shall keep my bones until
I wake from sleep
And leave my bed of clay;
Sweet truth to me!
I shall arise and with these eyes,
My Saviour shall I see.
