"Will The Circle Be Unbroken"

I was standing by the window

On one cold and cloudy day

When I saw the hearse come rolling

For to carry my sister away

Will the circle be unbroken

By and by Lord, by and by

There's a better home awaiting

In the sky Lord, in the sky

I said to the undertaker

Undertaker please drive slow

For this lady you are carrying

Lord I hate to see her go

Will the circle be unbroken

By and by Lord, by and by

There's a better home awaiting

In the sky Lord, in the sky

Oh, I followed close behind her

Tried to hold up and be brave

But I could not hide my sorrow

When they laid her in the grave

Will the circle be unbroken

By and by Lord, by and by

There's a better home awaiting

In the sky Lord, in the sky

I went back home, the home was lonesome

Since my sister, she was gone

All my brothers and sisters crying

What a home so sad and alone

Will the circle be unbroken

By and by Lord, by and by

There's a better home awaiting

In the sky Lord, in the sky

We sang songs of childhood

Hymns of faith that made us strong

Ones that sister Maybelle taught us

Hear the angels sing along

Will the circle be unbroken

By and by Lord, by and by

There's a better home awaiting

In the sky Lord, in the sky
