To live is Christ to die is gain
Though inside a grave you lie
I know that I will see you again

This autumns night I feel much pain
A Sunday night you time to die
To Live is Christ tom die is gain

In this dark world I still remain
You left without a single good-bye
I know that I will see you again

This truth so odd but oh so plain
You're far away yer still are nigh
To live is Christ to die is gain

Emotions run me like a train
Though sorrow comes I cannot cry
I know that I will see you again

I'm waiting here for healing rain
In this truth I can rely:
To live is Christ to die is gain
I know that I will see you again.
