When I have gone remember,
I am with Jesus.
Then do not grieve,
because I have passed away.
And will you weep, because I did not stay.
It's only for a spell, we must be parted.
Not many years on earth to us are given,
And When my Saviour tells me
you are coming, I'll go with Him
and welcome you to Heaven.
