INTRO: [G7] [C] ...[C7] (Notes to last line of first verse) CHORUS [F] Take this message to my [C] mother It will fill her heart with [G7] joy [C] Tell her that I've met my [G7] Saviour God has saved her wand'ring [C] boy. [C] The tears and sorrow I have [G7] caused her How I wish I could re-[C] pay But tell her I'll be waiting [G7] for her We'll meet in heaven some glad [C] day. ... [C7] How she cried when I left her I know it filled her heart with pain She said, "Son, please don't leave me For we may never meet again." CHORUS Years have passed since that parting But I know she waits and prays Soon I'll cross that dark river Please let her know that I was saved. CHORUS
