Beyond the Sunset

Pat Boone      
Unnamed Organist

Beyond the sunset, O blissful morning.
When with our Savior heaven's begun.
Earth's toiling ended, O glorious dawning
Beyond the sunset when day is done.
Should you go first and I remain
to walk the road alone,
I'll live in memories garden, dear,
with happy days we've known.

In spring I'll wait for roses red,
when faded, the lilacs blue.
In early fall when brown leaves fall,
I'll catch a glimpse of you.

Should you go first and I remain,
for battle to be fought.
Each thing you've touched along the way
will be a hallowed spot.

I'll hear your voice, I'll see your smile,
though blindly I may grope,
The memory of your helping hand
will buoy me on with hope.
Should you go first and I remain,
one thing I'll have you do:
Walk slowly down that long long path,
for soon I'll follow you.

I want to know each step you take,
so I may take the same.
For someday down that lonely road
you'll hear me call your name.
In that fair homeland
We'll know no parting
Beyond the sunset
Forevermore.

Melody - Blanche Kerr Brock, 1936         Words - Virgil P. Brock, 1936
