I Want to Go to Heaven With You
By Ruby Leonard
I know this world is sinful
And full of pain and strife
I know I’ve stumbled many a time
While walkin thru this life.
I know I’m laiden with many a fault
And many a tears been shed
And brought me down on bended knees
Before I go to bed.
I want to share with all your joys
And even all your pain
With Jesus carrying all our load
Until in Heaven we gain.
Remember we are not alone
He knows our every care
That even in our darkest hour
He listens to our prayer.
He never promised wealth or health
Or earthly fame or gold
The treasure he wants is all our love
In the shepherds sheltering fold.
When this old piece of mortal flesh
This painful mound of clay
Will leave our whole immortal soul
On that grand and glorious day.
I want to meet Him in the air
And sing a joyful song
But What I want the very most of all
Is for you to go along.
