1 Death will come to every one in this world of woe,
For the sentence fell on the high and low;
All shall lie beneath the sod till the trump of God,
Bids them rise and to the judgment go.
We’ll arise, we’ll arise, in the resurrection morn;
We’ll arise, we’ll arise, when the Lord in glory comes;
All the righteous will ascend to their final home,
And the lost will perish forevermore;
We’ll arise, we’ll arise, in the resurrection morn.
2 Not the body that shall be is the sleeping clay,
It is as a seed that will soon decay,
But another plant shall rise toward the sunny skies,
Which shall bloom in beauty all the day. [Refrain]
3 When the Savior shall appear, He shall bring once more
All the souls that pass to the other shore;
All the sleeping bodies then shall be raised again,
And fore’er mortality be o’er. [Refrain]
