1 Jesus, my hope and confidence;
My Saviour, life and peace;
I know that he is my defence,
His love will never cease.
2 The long and tedious night of death,
Can't cause me to despair;
My hope my trust and living faith,
Removes all doubts and fear.
3 Jesus, my Lord, for ever lives,
And I shall live likewise;
Yes, I shall be where Jesus is,
And see him with mine eyes.
4 Why should I doubt or feel afraid,
Since Jesus is my friend;
Like members with a living hear,
With him I shall ascend
5 Like him I shall be glorified,
And worship at his throne;
And live for him who for me died,
And wholly be his own.
6 Tho' I must lay this body down,
To mingle with the clay,
Till wak'ned by the trumpet sound,
In that great solemn day.
7 then I shall be restor'd again,
And like the angels shine;
No more subject to death or pain,
Immortal and divine.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCXXV
