For ever with the Lord:" Amen, so let it be:
Unbounded bliss is in that word,
Unbounded bliss is in that word,
'Tis immortality, 
'Tis immortality, 
'Tis immorality.

Knowing as I am know,
How shall I love that word:
And oft repeat before the throne,
"Forever with the Lord."

The trump of final doom
Will speak the self-same word,
And heaven's voice thunder through the tomb
"Forever with the Lord."

The tomb shall echo deep
That death-awakening word-
The saints shall hear it in their sleep,
"Forever with the Lord."

Then while they upward fly,
That resurrection word
Shall be their shout of victory,
"Forever with the Lord."
