When I Cross Over

from Good Good Man

When I cross over
I’ll find my mother
Strong as a willow
Eyes shining bright

When I cross over
I’ll find my father
Straight as a Western Pine
Holding her tight

(chorus)

I follow the river
Over the meadow
Long I have traveled
Long I have roamed
One step for loving
One step for laughter
One step towards heaven
And I’m almost home

When I cross over
I’ll ask forgiveness
For I am uncertain
I walk unsure

My burning question
With heaven’s perfection
Why can’t we have that
Right here on earth?

If you follow the river
Over the meadow
Long you may travel
Long you may roam
One step for loving
One step for laughter
One step towards heaven
You’re almost home

Here come the broken
Lost and abandoned
Forsaken and desperate
Cold and alone
If I don’t make it
Never you mind me
Give them all respite
Show the way home

(chorus)
