As you lay there in your bed,
They were crying rivers of tears,
You looked up at them all,
And said, "Don't worry my dears,
I'm going to a better place
Where I'll see the angels all aglow.
When I walk through those pearly gates,
My white robe flowing,
I'll be prepared to see the Master's face.
I'll walk down those streets of gold
Forever and evermore,
I'll be waiting for you to come
To that beautiful shore, where we'll never grow old.
So dry your eyes, don't cry,
I'll see you when the time is right
In the sweet by and by.
We'll be together soon, never say goodbye."
