Lonely Tombs

print

I was strolling one day in a lonely graveyard
When a voice from the tomb seemed to say
I once lived as you lived walked and talked as you talk
But from earth I was soon called away

   Oh those tombs (oh those tombs) lonely tombs (lonely tombs)
   Seemed to say in a low gentle tone
   Oh how sweet (oh how sweet) is the rest (is the rest)
   In our beautiful Heavenly home

Every voice from the tomb seemed to whisper and say
Living man you must soon follow me
And I thought as I looked on those cold marble slabs
What a dark lonely place that must be

Then I came to the place where my mother was laid
And in silence I stood by her tomb
And her voice seemed to say in a low gentle tone
I am safe with my Savior at home
