Miss Me-But Let Me Go
When I come to the end ofthe road And the sun has setfor me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cryfor a soul setfree?
Miss Me a little-But Not Too Long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that we once shared
Miss Me- But Let Me Go.
. For this is a journey that we all must take And each must go alone
It's all a part ofthe Master's plan A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss Me-But Let Me go.
