Will The Circle Be Unbroken?
There are loved ones in the glory, Whose dear forms we often miss; When you close your earthly story, Will you meet them in their bliss? In the joyous days of childhood, Oft they told of wondrous love; Pointed to the dying Saviour, Now they dwell with him above. You remember songs of heaven, Which you sang with childish voice; Do you love the hymns they taught you, Or are songs of earth your choice? You can picture happy gatherings, Round the fire side long ago, And you think of tearful partings, When they left you here below. One by one their seats were emptied, One by one they went away, Now the family is parted, Will it be complete some day? Chorus Will the circle be unbroken By and by, by and by? In that better home awaiting, In the sky, in the sky?
