Death shall not catch me unprepared, I deem;
by Jez Brul
My knees are bended, I've finished my race;
I do not fear him, I do not fear him,
Though he may come now and shut my fireplace.
I shall lit my last lamp and vow to pray,
Invulnerable I in my stronghold
My heart keeps glowing though my lips turned gray
For all the days and years I do behold.
Death shall not catch me unprepared, I'm free;
To be redeemed by Blood I did aspire.
Yes, no dominion has death over me
Like gold, my faith has been tested on fire
Now I lay my hands to Thy loving arms,
I am Yours till my last second alarms.
