This Body of Clay

Previously recorded by the Perry Sisters.

Written by Diana Perry Gillette

VERSE 1
I’ve traveled this road for many long years
I’ve had bitter sorrow, and shed lonely tears
But I’m looking forward to that glorious change
When I lay down this body of clay for glory someday

CHORUS
Well, when I lay down this body of clay
I’ll leave it behind, for it won’t be mine, I’ll trade it away
I’ll say goodbye to this old world, forever to stay
When I lay down this body of clay for glory someday

VERSE 2
This body I live in is needing repair
The load has been heavy with burdens to bear
But when it comes time to leave here and I’m laid in the grave
I’ll just┬álay down this body of clay for glory someday
