The dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.@1 Thessalonians 4:16–17

When our work on earth is done,
And the victory has been won,
Oh, praise the Lord, we’ll live again;
When from sorrow we are free,
Blessèd thought that comforts me,
We’ll live again, we’ll live again.

Refrain

We’ll live again, we’ll live again,
Where Christ the Lord shall ever reign,
Free from all sorrow, sin and pain,
Oh, praise the Lord, we’ll live again.

When all suffering here is past,
And we reach our home at last,
Oh, praise the Lord, we’ll live again;
Christ through His redeeming love
Has prepared that home above,
We’ll live again, we’ll live again.

Refrain

At the golden gates above,
We shall meet the friends we love,
Oh, praise the Lord, we’ll live again;
And with them we’ll ever be
Throughout all eternity,
We’ll live again, we’ll live again.

Refrain
