The tears and sorrow I have caused her
How I wish I could repay
But tell her I'll be waiting for her
We'll meet in heaven some glad day...
How she cried when I left her
I know it filled her heart with pain
She said, "son, please don't leave me
For we may never meet again."
Years have passed since that parting
But I know she waits and prays
Soon I'll cross that dark river
Please let her know that I was saved.
