​Will The Circle Be Unbroken

This song is by Gene Harris and appears on the album In His Hands (1997).

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come a-rolling
Oh, to carry my mother 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

Well, I told the undertaker
"Undertaker, please drive slow
For this lady but you're holding
Oh, I hate to see her go"

I'm gonna follow close behind her
Try and hold up and be brave
But I could not hold 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, surely better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
