Short Mourning
by Keith Lancaster

Album: Lancaster Long Play


I've ventured in my mind
The way that it might be
So when my pain becomes too great
This is what you'll see
My flesh will lose the battle
But Christ has won the war
And the brightness of eternal love
Will pull me through the door

Chorus 1:
I want to die just a moment
Before the final horn is blown
So the Lord and I can come back
And I can take you home
I want to die just a moment
Before the final horn is blown
So the Lord and I can come right back
And I can take you home

On the pathway to my mansion (pathway face-to-face)
I'll meet Him face to face (stand before)
With saucer eyes, I'll stand before
The Savior of the race (Savior of the race)
He'll gently turn me 'round about (round about)
And with a knowing grin (death dies today)
"Death dies today," is what He'll say
"Just like I conqured sin
Put your arm around my shoulders (arm around my shoulder)
And I'll take you for a ride (for off)
For it's off to earth we're heading now
To get our lovely brides
Tell your wife that she's the last one (last one)
Who will ever have to cry (ever have to cry)
From loving a precious loved one (so afraid to die)
Who was so afraid to die

Chorus 2:
I want to die just a moment (die just before)
Before the final horn is blown (so the Lord and I can come back)
So the Lord and I can come back (I can take you home)
And I can take you home (take you home)
I want to die just a moment (die just before)
Before the final horn is blown (so the Lord and I can come back)
So the Lord and I can come right back
And I can take you home (I can take you home)

Surprise will wash away your night (wash away your night)
And flood it into day
You'll laugh and cry and run for me (laugh and run for me)
And this is what I'll say (this is what I'll say)
"As the flowers grow in April, (rain renews the land)
When rain renews the land (bloom for you)
I'll bloom for you my darling wife (my hand)
So come and take my hand (come and take my hand)"

Repeat Chorus 2

Take you home (Lord and I will come right back)
Take you home (take you home)
Take you home (come and take you home)
Take you home!
