Won’t You Come And Sing For Me

print

I feel the shadows now upon me
And the angels beckon to me
Before I go dear sisters and brothers
Won’t you come and sing for me

   Sing those hymns we sang together
   In that plain little church with the benches all worn
   How dear to my heart how precious the moments
   We stood shaking hands and singing a song

My burden is heavy my way has grown weary
I have traveled a road that is long
And it would warm this old heart my dear brother
If you come and sing me one song

In my home beyond the dark river
Your sweet faces no more I will see
Until we meet where there’s no more sad parting
Won’t you come and sing for me
