There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I'm gonna rise right out of the ground
Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

Well, look way down the river
What do Du think I see
I see a band of Engel
And there coming after me

There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

We'll look down younder Gabriel
Put your feet on the land and see
But Gabriel don't blow your trumpet
Till Du hear from me

There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

Well meet me Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
And if these wings don't fail me
I will meet Du anywhere

Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

Well, meet me mother and father
Meet me down the river road
And Mama Du know that I'll be there
When I check in my load

Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
