“1 Corinthians 15:55”
Johnny Cash

A
Oh, death, where is thy sting?
E                                           A
Oh, grave, where is thy victory?
A                                        D
Oh, life, you are a shining path, and
D                                      A
hope springs eternal just over the rise when I
E                                              A
see my Redeemer beckoning me.

A
Oh, row my ship over the waves of your sea; let me
E                                     A
find a safe port now and then.
A       D                                   A
Don’t let the dark one in your sanctuary
B                                  E
until it’s time to pack it in.

Oh, row, row my ship with the fire of your breath
and don’t lay a broadside on your ship as yet.
Blow, ye warm winds when it’s chilly and wet,
and don’t come too soon for collecting my debt.

Oh, death, where is thy sting?
Oh, grave, where is thy victory?
Oh, life, you are a shining path,
and hope springs eternal just over the rise when I
see my Redeemer beckoning me.

Oh, let me sail on with my ships to the east
and keep my eye on the North Star.
When the journey is no good for man or for beast,
I’ll be safe wherever you are.

Just let me sail in to your harbor of lights
and there, and forever, to cast out my line.
Give me my task and let me do it right,
and do it with all of my might.

Oh, death, where is thy sting?
Oh, grave, where is thy victory?
Oh, life, you are a shining path,
and hope springs eternal just over the rise when I
see my Redeemer beckoning me.
