Hymn/Song Information

And must this body die This mortal frame decay




And must this body die?
This well-wrought frame decay?
And must these active limbs of mine
Lie mouldering in the clay?


Corruption, earth, and worms
Shall but refine this flesh
Till my triumphant spirit comes
To put it on afresh.


God my Redeemer lives,
And always from the skies
Looks down, and watches all my dust
Till he shall bid it rise.


Arrayed in glorious grace
Shall these vile bodies shine.
And every shape and every face
Look heavenly and divine.


These lively hopes we owe.
To Jesus' saving love;
We would adore his grace below,
And sing his power above.


Dear Lord, accept the praise
Of these, our humble songs,
Till tunes of nobler sound we raise
With our immortal tongues.


---Alternative verses---


And Must this body die?
This mortal frame decay?
And must these active limbs of mine
Lie mouldering in the clay?


God my Redeemer lives,
And often from the skies
Looks down, and watches all my dust
Till he shall bid it rise.


God my Redeemer lives,
And ever from the skies
Looks down, and watches all my dust
Till he shall bid it rise.


Arrayed in glorious grace
Shall these vile bodies shine.
And every shape and every face
Be heavenly and divine.


These lively hopes we owe.
To Jesus' dying love;
We would adore his grace below,
And sing his power above.


These lively hopes we owe.
Lord, to thy dying love;
O may we bless thy grace below,
And sing thy grace alone.
