1 I will not leave you comfortless,
Tho’ I shall go away,
The Comforter shall come to bless,
Forevermore to stay.
“I will not leave you comfortless,”
O precious promise, mine,
I seem to hear the accents fall
From lips of love divine,
O grave, where is thy victory?
O death, where is thy sting?
I’ll have no fear, for Christ I know,
His ransomed home will bring.
2 And if I go I shall prepare
For you a dwelling place,
My Father’s house hath mansions fair
For those who trust His grace. [Refrain]
3 “I shall return,” O Lord, how long
Must Thy redeemed await
To hear the angel’s welcome song,
Or pass the heav’nly gate? [Refrain]
