Representative 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.

Oh, turn to thy God
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]
