Representative Text

1 I know that my Redeemer lives,
And ever prays for me;
I know eternal life He gives,
From sin and sorrow free.

I know, I know that my Redeemer lives,
I know, I know eternal life he gives;
I know, I know that my Redeemer lives.

2 He wills that I should holy be,
In word, and tho't, in deed;
Then I His holy face may see,
When from this earth-life freed. [Refrain]

3 I know that unto sinful men
His saving grace is nigh;
I know that He will come again
To take me home on high. [Refrain]

4 I know that over yonder stands
A place prepared for me;
A home, a house not made with hands,
Most wonderful to see. [Refrain]
