Do not cry for me when I have gone
To meet my Master by Heaven’s Gate.
Even though I’ll miss you so,
I will not hesitate
To let the angels carry me away
Beyond the shining stars
To learn my fate.
Do not weep for me, for I’m not here.
My pain is gone, and I am young again.
I run by rushing streams and fields of flowers
And stop to say “hello” to my old friend.
I listen to the angels sing their songs,
As I sit before the throne of God,
And feel my heart and soul begin to mend.
Do not spend your time in sorrow,
For I’ll be waiting here for you.
I’ll just be around the corner
Until your life is through.
We will all meet in Heaven,
When it is your time to come.
And God will make us anew.
