I’ll See You With Jesus

Why the tears and why faces so sad?

If you know where I am, you would be glad.

God called me by name and the angels came especially for me.

 

They carried me up to my Home in the sky

So you don’t have to worry or wonder why; I no longer suffer, I no longer cry;

‘Cause God has wiped every tear from my eye.

 

My work here is finished, my race has been won.

Please live on for Jesus

And on that Great Day you will see my smile

Goodbye my family, my loved ones, my friends,
