  1. I guess it’s time for you to leave,
    I guess it’s time for you to go;
    We’ll Meet Again over on the Other Shore
    Time wait for no one,
    It just keeps movin on,
    We all got to go to work and start on our other home;
    We all hate to leave this world but we all got to start on our Heavenly Home,
    We’ll meet again up in the throne;
    You been through the storm and the rain,
    Had so many trials, aches, and pain:
    but through it all,-
    God kept you in his Prayer!
