TOMORROW MAY MEAN GOODBY
1. We never know at the dawn of day,
Greeting the rising sun,
Whether the reaper shall call away,
Ere that days work is done.
Tomorrow may mean good-by,
We never know when nor why,
God calls us away, when life seems
Our bodies in dust to lie;
Tomorrow our souls may sigh,
For beauties we’ve let slip by,
O soul then prepare, sweet heaven
Tomorrow may mean goodby.
2. We live each day of this earthly life,
As tho it ne’er would end,
Forgetting God in our daily strife,
Grieving this precious friend.
3. God guides our footsteps each
Burdens He will relieve,
Promising freely sufficient grace,
If only we believe.
