1. ’Tis a sweet and glorious tho’t that comes to me,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on;
Jesus saved my soul from death, and now I’m free,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on.

Refrain
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on.
Thru eternity I’ll live on;
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on,
Thru eternity I’ll live on.

2. When my body’s slumb’ring in the cold, cold clay,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on;
There to sleep in Jesus till the judgment day,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on. [Refrain]

3. When the world’s on fire and darkness veils the sun,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on;
Men will cry and to the rocks and mountains run,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on. [Refrain]

4. In the glory-land, with Jesus on the throne,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on;
Thru eternal ages singing, home, sweet home,
I’ll live on, yes, I’ll live on. [Refrain]
