"Waiting by the gate"

by David Cooper
(Conway,S.C. USA)

Should I leave this world tomorrow
For that land of no goodbye's
Parting would be with one regret
And that is leaving you behind
The grave may separate us
When they lay me neath the clay
Beyond this veil of sorrow
I'll be waiting by the gate

I'll be waiting by the gate
Be the first one that you see
We'll meet again some day
Won't have to search Heaven for me
What a day that's gonna be
When we meet beyond the grave
Be the first one that you see
I'll be waiting by the gate

I'll tell Peter when I get there
That I'm gonna wait for you
Rest by the pearly portal
As the saints go marching through
Look towards that ole river
Search until I see your face
When you cross chilly-Jordan
I'll be waiting by the gate
