My Love One's Are Waiting for Me

Cat. #1154 (MFH #805) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on July 15, 1970

VERSE 1
When I shall cross over th dark rollin' tide
O, what a glad meetin' there be
For close by th side of th pearly white gates
My loved ones are waiting for me

CHORUS:
Waiting for me, waiting for me
O, what a glad meetin there be
Waitin' for me, waitin' for me
My loved ones are waitin' for me

VERSE 2
Sometimes I get wearied an' want to go home
But all of my work are not done
I'm glad I can labor for Jesus my Lord
Till sound of sweet message, welcome home
