There ain't no grave can hold my body down 
There ain't no grave can hold my body down 
When I hear that trumpet sound I'm gonna rise right out of the ground 
Ain't no grave can hold my body down 

Well, look way down the river, what do you think I see? 
I see a band of angels and they're coming after me 
Ain't no grave can hold my body down 
There ain't no grave can hold my body down 

Well, look down yonder Gabriel, put your feet on the land and see 
But Gabriel don't you blow your trumpet 'til you hear it from me 
There ain't no grave can hold my body down 
Ain't no grave can hold my body down 

Well, meet me Jesus, meet me. Meet me in the middle of the air 
And if these wings don't fail me I will meet you anywhere 
Ain't no grave can hold my body down 
There ain't no grave can hold my body down 

Well, meet me mother and father, meet me down the river road 
And momma you know that I'll be there when I check in my load 
Ain't no grave can hold my body down 
There ain't no grave can hold my body down 
There ain't no grave can hold my body down
