Ain't No Grave Lyrics

by Tom Jones

Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
Oh, when I hear that trumpet sound
I'm gonna get up out of this ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down

Go down yonder, Gabriel
Put your foot on the land and sea
Oh, Gabriel, don't you blow your horn
Until you hear from me

I look way over yonder
What do you think I see?
I see a band of angels
Coming after me

And then I looked way down the river
I saw the people dressed in white
I knew it was God's people
'Cause I saw them doing right

Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
Oh, when I hear the trumpet sound
I'm gonna get up out of this ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down

I'm going down to the River Jordan
Gonna bury my knees in the sand
Holler "Ah, Hosanna"
Till I reach that promised land

And when I look way over yonder
What do you think I see?
I see a band of angels
And they're coming after me

So meet me, King Jesus, meet me
Oh, won't You meet me in the middle of the air?
If these wings should carry me
I wouldn't need another pair

Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
Oh, when I hear the trumpet sound
I'm gonna get up out of this ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
