When The Sun Of My Life Goes Down

print

When my labor here is over at last and I lay these burdens down
I’ll sail away home to Heaven above for my Savior I have found
I’ll lay these burdens down at His feet and exchange them for a crown
I’ll leave this world of trouble and sorrow when the sun of my life goes down

    Oh Lord I know I’m living on higher ground
    I know because in my heart’s true love I’ve found
    And when I hear Gabriel’s trumpet loudly sound
    I’ll leave this world of trouble and sorrow when the sun of my life goes

To this changing world I bid farewell when I hear that trumpet sound
I’ll sail away to heaven above for my Savior I have found
I’ve made my plans I’m ready to go I’ll wear a robe and crown
And I’ll meet my friends and loved ones up yonder when the sun of my life goes down
