Iíll Praise My Master 558

Tune: Henry Isom Byrd, 1927
Lyrics: Baltimore Collection, 1801
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
I'll praise my Master while I've breath,
I hope to praise Him after death,
I hope to praise Him when I die,
And shout salvation as I fly.

I soon shall pass the vale of death,
And in His arms I'll lose my breath,
And then my happy soul shall tell
My Jesus hath done all things well.

Then I shall see my blessed God,
And praise Him in His bright abode,
My theme in blest eternity,
Shall glory, glory, glory be.
Henry Isom Byrd (1891-1970) was of Ozark, Alabama.
