Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home
The Lord has promised good to me; His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail, and mortal life shall cease
I shall possess, within the veil, a life of joy and peace
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, the sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below, will be forever mine
I told the undertaker,
"Undertaker, please drive slow,
For this lady you are haulin'
Lord, I hate to see her go."
