Tell Mother I Will Meet Her

Representative Text

1 In a far and distant city, dying at the close of day,
‘Twas a faith-haired boy who wandered far from home,
Take this message to my mother,
When my work on earth is thro’,
Tell her that her boy will meet her
In that land beyond the blue.

Refrain:
Tell my mother, I will meet her
When my work of love and labor all are thro’,
Where the good of earth shall gather with the faithful and the true,
Tell her that her boy will meet her
In that land beyond the blue.

2 In his hand he held a picture,
Of the old home far away,
In the other ‘twas a mother old and gray
“While in accents low he whispered,
She will know that I was true.”
Tell her that her boy will meet her
In that land beyond the blue. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis my last good-night he whispered,
Angels gather round my bed,
Soon with all my friends and loved ones I shall be,
“Down the valley of the shadow,
Jesus leads me safely thro.”
Tell her that her boy will meet her
In that land beyond the blue. [Refrain]

4 To the old home came a message,
‘Twas to mother from her boy,
But alas, for her the message came too late,
“For that day the angels took her,
To the faithful and the true.”
And tonight she dwells with Willie
In that land beyond the blue. [Refrain]
