When God Comes and Gathers His Jewels

The [G] ceremony was [C] over A [D7] lad stood alone in [G] tears For he had just [C] said goodbye To the [D7] one he had loved thru the [G] years. He stood all alone with his head bowed down As though his heart would break Then the Parson came over and took his hand And to him these words he did say. CHORUS When [G] God comes and gathers his [C] jewels All his [D7] treasures of diamonds and [G] gold You'll meet her up there in [C] heaven so fair When [D7] God comes and gathers his [G] jewels. (Substitute I'll meet her.....on last chorus) Each night when the pale moon is shining You can see this lad all alone With his eyes lifted to'ard heaven He's repeating these words he was told. CHORUS
