    ** WHAT WILL I LEAVE BEHIND**

    After I leave for worlds unknown,
    Over the border line.
    Never again on earth to roam,
    What will I leave behind.

    Will I be missed by those I’ve loved,
    Or have I been unkind.
    Have I been true to God above,
    What will I leave behind.

    This is my prayer, Oh Lord today,
    Let me be only Thine.
    When I am called from earth away,
    Let Heaven then be mine.

    Leave behind, yes, leave behind,
    What will I leave behind.
    After I leave for worlds unknown,
    What will I leave behind.

    The footsteps I’ve made, while passing through live,
    Will they stand the testing of time.
    Will they have a bearing in somebody’s live,
    Will they be there for my children to find?

    I don’t want to leave something after I’m gone,
    To add to their troubled mind.
    I’d like to leave something that they can’t forget,
    Like the sound of an old song of Zion.

    BBob,

    Bro Bob,
    My 88 year old grandmother died on 5/2. This was her favorite song. She ask me years ago to do her service and I officiated on 5/5. I was contemplating what I would speak on and then it came to me that I should allow her song to be the message. This was a great relief and the Lord gave me great liberty to preach to all of our family. This is a blessing to me to see this song on the board. Thanks so much.
