When the time has come for me to leave this earth
And my body is laid to rest in the ground
I have a pleasant hope of a new future life
Which I will spend with my Lord in glory.
My life may be over as it seems on the earth
But God has promised me eternal life
In living forever, worshiping in heaven
Having been redeemed by Jesusí blood.
The dear ones I leave behind on earth
I will see again when the dead and living meet
For though my body fades away
The real me actually never dies.
So this is the hope I know I have:
A life eternal beyond the grave.
