Should you go first and I remain,
To walk the road alone
I'll live in memory's garden dear,
With happy days we've known
In spring I'll wait for roses red,
When fades the lilacs bloom
And in early fall when brown leaves fall,
I'll catch a glimpse of you
Should you go first and I remain,
For battles to be fought
Each thing you've touched along the way,
Will be a hallowed spot
I'll hear your voice I'll see your smile
Though blindly I may grope
The memory of your helping hand,
Will buoy me on with hope

(c)Beyond the sunset
Oh blissful (g)morning
When with our savior,
Heaven is be(c)gun
Earth's toiling ended,
Oh glorious (f)dawning
Beyond the (c)sunset (g)
When day is (c)done

Should you go first and I remain,
To finish with the scroll
No lessening shadows shall ever creep in
To make this life seem droll
We've known so much of happiness,
We've had our cup of joy
And memory is one gift of god,
That death cannot destroy
I want to know each step you take,
That I may walk the same
For someday down that lonely road,
You'll hear me call your name
Should you go first and I remain,
One thing I'll have you do
Walk slowly down that long long path,
For soon I'll follow you

(c)In that fair homeland
We'll know no (f)parting
Beyond the (c)sunset (g)
