I Hope Iíll See You In Heaven
Words and Music by: Larry Norman When you first begin your journey You're not sure of who you are And the lessons that you're learning They don't seem to take you far And you just can't keep from stumbling Though you try so hard to stand And the truth can be so humbling When it's just beyond your hand. As though youth were my invention As though love lay undefined To stay free was my intention To stay young and unconfined And so I held my pride above you Oh yes, what a fool was I Holding back those words "God Loves You" And letting out that word "Good-Bye". I was wrong to let you go I was a child and I did not know About the love that we both could have given And now you're gone so far away I hope I'll see you again someday But if I don't I hope I'll see you in Heaven. I was foolish in my younger days To think they'd never end Life confused me with its changing ways And I could not comprehend All the meaning in those moments Now lost like footprints in the sand And I'm standing here remembering But it's so hard to understand. I was wrong to let you go I was a child and I did not know About the love that we both could have given And now you're gone so far away I hope I'll see you again someday But if I don't I hope I'll see you in Heaven. I've been sitting in this garden In the middle of my days And my memories fade and harden As the years they slip away And I've been looking in this mirror At the age around my eyes Time is such an earnest laborer Precision is his neighbor Lay my body in the ground But let my spirit touch the skies. And I was wrong to let you go I was a child, how could I know About the love that we both could have, should have given And now you're gone so far away I hope I'll see you again someday But if I don't I hope I'll see you in Heaven If I don't I hope I'll see you in Heaven Well, if I don't I hope I'll see you in Heaven.
