47b IDUMEA - as written

1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune
to the Southern Harmony version of this tune


And am I born to die?
To lay this body down!
And must my trembling spirit fly
Into a world unknown?

A land of deepest shade,
Unpierced by human thought;
The dreary regions of the dead,
Where all things are forgot!

Soon as from earth I go
What will become of me?
Eternal happiness or woe
Shall then my portion be!

Waked by the trumpet sound
I from my grave shall rise,
And see the Judge with glory crowned
And see the flaming skies!
