Song 178: "Ain't No Grave" - Claude Ely

There ain’t no grave can hold my body down
There ain’t no grave can hold my body down
When I hear the trumpet sound
Gonna get up outa the ground
There ain’t no grave can hold my body down

Well go down yonder Gabriel
Put your foot on the land and sea
But don’t you blow that trumpet until you hear from me

Well look way over yonder
See people dressed in white
I know it was God’s people I seen ’em doin right

Oh look way over Jordan
What do you think I see
I see a band of angels and they’re comin’ after me

Well I goin to the river of Jordan
Bury my knees in the sand
Gonna holler high Hosanna til I reach that promised land

Oh look way over yonder
What do you think I see
I see a band of angels and they’re comin’ after me

Well meet me Jesus meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
And if these wings should fail me there won’t be no other pair
