Should you go first and I remain to walk the road alone.
I 'll live in memories garden dear with happy days w eve known.
In spring I 'll wait fo r roses red, When fades the lilac blue.
In early fa ll when brown leavesfall, III catch a glimpse o fyou.
Should you go first and I remain fo r battles to be fought.
Each thing you touched along the way w ill be a hallowed spot.
I hear your voice, I see your smile tho blindly I may grope.
The memory o f your helping hand Will buoy me on with hope.
Shouldyou go first and I remain one thing I w ould have you do.
Walk slowly dow n the long long path For soon Tilfollow you.
I 'll w ant to know each step you take, That I may take the same.
For some day down that lonely road, Youll hear me callyou r name.

When I must leave you For a little while
Please do not grieve And shed w ild tears And hug you r sorrow to you
Through the years Bur start out bravely With a gallant smile
And in my name Live on and do All the things the same Feed not your loneliness On empty days Butfill each waking hour In useful ways Reach out our hand In com fort and in cheer And I in turn w ill comfort you And hold you near And never never be afraid to die For I am w aiting fo r you in the sky

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths o f righteousness fo r his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley o f the shadow o f death,
I w illfea r no evil: fo r thou art with me; thy rod and thy stajfthey com fort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence o f mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shallfollow me all the days o f my life: and I w ill dw ell in the
house o f the LORDfo r ever.
