Tune:  Some day the silver cord will break...

(Danish: Sølvsnoren brister dog engang…)

Praise God, I am redeemed by Christ,
however deeply I feel low,
but by His blood He sacrificed
I´m cleansed in Him and white as snow!

./. My hope in Him is sweet and bright,
His precious word is full of light!  ./.

My time is up, nay maybe soon,
I with my body frail will part
by night beneath the shining moon
or at a sunrise soon to start!

How strange His providence may be,
His loving plan is full of rest,
and I up yonder shall not see
a single countenance depressed!

I am on earth a stranger still,
and say to those I bid goodbye,
o, let the gospel be your thrill,
let´s meet again for I won´t die!

I think I see a heav´nly shore
packed with a happy, smiling throng,
filled with His praise and full of awe,
oh, to that day of Christ I long!  (Phil. 1:6)
