Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: When life on earth for me is past, o savior take my hand. Lord, grant that I might firmly stand upon the golden strand.
Verse 2: When I shall cease to walk life’s road, let me come home to thee; take me into thy blest abode to dwell eternally.
Verse 3: When all my labors are complete and I shall work no more; o savior, guide my weary feet thru death to heaven’s door.
Chorus: For soon my journey here must end, my earthly life must fade. Lord, grant that I might then assen, immortally arrayed.
