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.
Absent from flesh, O glorious day!
In one triumphant stroke
My reckoning paid, my charges dropped,
And the bonds ’round my hands are broke.
I go where God and glory shine,
To one eternal day
And this failing body I now resign,
For the angels point my way
For the angels point my way .
–Absent From Flesh, Sojourn Music
