This robe of flesh keeps getting
worn and older,
And soon I’ll hear the Savior calling me;
"Come home, My child, your work on earth is over,
You’ve fought the fight, come share the victory!"
Eternal home, not built by
Awaiting me there on that peaceful shore;
No death, no pain, no tears to dim my eyes again,
There Jesus lives and reigns forevermore.
This house of flesh I will not
need much longer,
It’s getting old and weaker ev’ry day;
I will not fear for Jesus will be with me,
Just like before and all along the way!
O glorious thought, soon I shall
see my Savior!
Who died for me and saved me by His grace;
This robe of flesh I’ll leave and rise immortal,
And there I’ll see my Savior face to face.
