Full Text

1 Going down to the grave, with no hope in thy heart,
That thy God will receive thee all guilt as thou art;
Life’s sunshine extinguished with faltering tread,
In darkness and doubt going down to the dead.

Refrain:
Oh, turn to thy go
Who dwelleth on high,
Come trusting his word,
And thou shalt not die.

2 Going down to the grave, in the blackness of night,
No star-beam of love from the Father of light;
No Savior’s sweet presence and promise to save;
A stranger to God, going down to the grave. [Refrain]

3 No God and no hope, where, oh, where is thy stay?
Thy Savior long pleading turns not yet away;
His sad eye will pity, his strong arm can save,
Why then in thine own strength go down to the grave. [Refrain]

4 Thine hours of gay pleasure ere long will be o’er,
A dark gulf awaits thee, its mad waters roar;
Too late thou wilt call on the Mighty to save,
When thy pray’r shall be lost in eternity’s grave. [Refrain]
