Take me down to yonder river
Carry my body down
To the place where we hung up your song
Carry my body down

And don't ever let your light on me be ending
Don't let death cover me
Turn your sweet face from my offending
From the flesh of hate that sticks to me

Happy shall I be
Happy shall I be
To set back what is done
To scatter blood on your stone

And don't ever let your light on me be ending
Don't let death cover me
Turn your sweet face from my offending
From the flesh of hate that sticks to me

And if I forget you
Let my right hand wither on my arm
Let my tongue rot in my mouth
If I don't count you above my highest joy

And don't ever let your light on me be ending
Don't let death cover me
Turn your sweet face from my offending
From the flesh of hate that sticks to me
