Searching For A Funeral Poem For Your Spouse?

Beyond The Sunset (Should You Go First)

Should you go first and I remain to walk the road alone

I'll live in mem'ry's garden dear with happy days we've known

In spring I'll wait for roses red when fades the lilacs blue

And in early fall when brown leaves call 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 mem'ry of your helping hand will buoy me on with hope

Beyond the sunset oh blissful morning when with our Saviour heaven is begun

Earth's toiling ended oh glorious dawning beyond the sunset when day is done.

Should you go first and I remain to finish with the scroll

No less than 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

In that fair homeland we'll know no parting beyond the sunset for evermore.

I hear a voice you cannot hear,

Which says, I must not stay;

I see a hand you cannot see,

Which beckons me away.
