GOODBYE, WORLD, GOODBYE

 Mosie Lister

I told all my troubles “Goodbye”
Goodbye to each tear and each sigh
This world where I roam cannot be my home
I’m bound for that land in the sky
I walk and I talk with my Lord
I feast every day on His Word
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

Now don’t you weep for me when I’m gone
‘Cause I won’t have to leave here alone
And when I hear that last trumpet sound
My feet won’t stay on the ground
Gonna rise with a shout, gonna fly
Gonna ride with my Lord through the sky
Heaven is near, and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

Well, I won’t have the blues anymore
When I step across to that shore
And I’ll never pine for I’ll leave behind
My heartaches and tears evermore
A day, maybe two then goodbye
Tomorrow I’ll rise up and fly
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

Now don’t you weep for me when I’m gone
‘Cause I won’t have to leave here alone
And when I hear that last trumpet sound
My feet won’t stay on the ground
Gonna rise with a shout, gonna fly
Gonna ride with my Lord through the sky
Heaven is near, and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

  1. Wish you could hear the piano without any other, it is drowning out the talent of the piano player.
