If Ever I Must Say Good-bye

We are mortal. Life will not always be as it now is. Sometimes my life is so happy that I can hardly imagine Heaven being a lot better, yet the Bible promises that the love we experience down here is merely a foretaste of whats waiting for us. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away... For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall know fully just as I also have been fully known... 1st Cor 13:9-12 I love you Lorna, forever...


If ever I must say good-bye and close my eyes and drift away

Its not that Id be sad to go, Ive known all along I cannot stay

But I could not bear to leave you here, where good-byes hurt so bad

Im going to a better land, I know I should be glad

If only I could wipe your tears away


I suppose someday well have to part, whether you go first or I do

And I know that it would break my heart, if I had to live without you

Oh, I know that we would meet again and it helps me when I cry

To think of our reunion there in that Land Beyond the Sky

Where well never have to say good-bye again


Weve had such good years together, and I wish for many more

For weve shared a lot of sunshine on our way

May we both grow old together, til we reach the other shore

And be faithful to our promise every day


When our time down here is over, and our bodies laid to rest

They wont keep our spirits captive any longer

Ill be hand in hand forever, with the girl I love the best

And the love we had down here will just be stronger.
