Some day when my last line is written

Some day when I’ve drawn my last breath

When my last words on earth have been spoken

And my lips are sealed in death

Don’t look on my cold form in pity

Don’t think of me as one dead

It’ll just be the house I once lived in

My spirit, by then, will have fled

I’ll have finished my time here alotted

But I won’t be in darkness alone

I will have heard from heaven

The summons to come on home

And when my body is in the grave

Don’t think that I’ll be there

I won’t be dead, but living

In the place Jesus went to prepare

And after all is said and done

Know that my last earnest prayer

Is that my loved ones be ready

Someday to meet me . . . there
