When I Am Gone

10s & 8s

M. H. Turner

1.

Shed not a tear o'er your friend's early bier,

When I am gone, when I am gone:

Smile when the slow tolling bell you shall hear,

When I am gone, when I am gone:

Weep not for me as you stand round my grave,

Think who has died his beloved to save,

Think of the crown all the ransomed shall wear,

When I am gone, when I am gone.

2.

Shed not a tear as you all kneel in prayer,

When I am gone, when I am gone:

Sing a sweet song when my grave you shall see,

When I am gone, when I am gone.

Sing to the Lamb who on earth once was slain,

Sing to the Lamb who in heaven doth reign,

Sing till the earth shall be filled with his name,

When I am gone, when I am gone.

3.

Plant you a rose that shall bloom o'er my grave,

When I am gone, when I am gone:

Sing a sweet song, such as angels may have,

When I am gone, when I am gone.

Praise ye the Lord that I'm freed from all care,

Pray ye the Lord that my joys you shall share,

Look up on high and believe that I'm there,

When I am gone, when I am gone.
