Ntro: [g7] [c] ...[c7] (notes to last line of first verse)
[f] take this message to my [c] mother
It will fill her heart with [g7] joy
[c] tell her that I’ve met my [g7] saviour
God has saved her wand’ring [c] boy.
[c] the tears and sorrow I have [g7] caused her
How I wish I could re-[c] pay
But tell her I’ll be waiting [g7] for her
We’ll meet in heaven some glad [c] day. ... [c7]
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.
