The Sun Of The Soul

 

When the sun of your life has gone down

And the clouds in the west turn to gold

Endless death will to you then have come

If the light has gone out in your soul

 

Oh just think how in death you would feel

With the light growing dim in your soul

Oh how long it will be oh how still

If the light has gone out in your soul

 

When you come to the end of the way

And life's story for you has been told

Oh how sad all to you will appear

If the light has gone out in your soul

 

When the chilly winds of death around you steal

And the sweat upon your brow is damp and cold

What a dread in your life you would feel

If the light has gone out in your soul

 

When before the judgment trial you shall stand

And the deeds of your life have been told

Good and evil appears oh what then

If the light has gone out in your soul
