Hymn/Song Information

No no it is not dying To go unto our God




No, no, it is not dying
To go unto our God;
This gloomy earth forsaking,
Our journey homeward taking
Along the starry road.


No, no, it is not dying
Heaven’s citizen to be;
A crown immortal wearing,
And rest unbroken sharing,
From care and conflict free.


No, no it is not dying
To hear this gracious word,
“Receive a Father’s blessing,
Forevermore possessing
The favour of thy Lord.”


No, no it is not dying
The Shepherd’s voice to know:
His sheep He ever leadeth,
His peaceful flock He feedeth,
Where living pastures grow.


No, no it is not dying
To wear a lordly crown;
Among God’s people dwelling,
The glorious triumph swelling
Of Him Whose sway we own.


Oh no! This is not dying,
Thou Saviour of mankind!
There streams of love are flowing,
No hindrance ever knowing;
Here, only drops we find.


---Alternative verses---


No, no it is not dying
To wear a heavenly crown;
Among God’s people dwelling,
The glorious triumph swelling
Of Him Whose sway we own.
