Close by a bed on a dark, winter day
Stood a young lad in the glim
Holding the hand of the girl that he loved
Whose life then was fast fading dim...
She had told him she would be his sweet wife
And they'd share each other's love
But God needed her there around His great throne
To sing with the angels above
Chorus I will be so all alone
For you know I love you true
We will meet again someday
I will be an angel too.
She smiled at him and he kissed her sweet lips
There in the faint candles glow
Then she lay still and the heartbroken lad
Whispered these words soft and low
The eyes of his darling forever were closed
Patiently waiting that day
When he would join her in that bright angel's band
Together forever to stay.
