Verse 1:Absent from flesh, O blissful thought; what joy this moment brings Freed from the blame my sin has brought; from pain and death and its sting.
Verse 2: Absent from flesh, O Glorious day! In one triumphant stroke My reckoning paid, my charges dropped and the bonds 'round my hands are broke.
Chorus: I go where God and glory shine, To one eternal day This failing body I now resign, For the angels point my way. The angels point my way.
Verse 3: Absent from flesh! then rise, my soul, where feet nor wings could climb, Beyond the sky, where planets roll, and beyond all keep of time.
