GoodNight by Matthew Smith

The Holidays are often a time to remember traditions, family and friends.
Often that includes those who have gone before us. I love this view of
saying "Goodnight till then."

Being one who has loved ones dear to me on the other side, I take comfort in
this song on loss, heaven and saying,"Goodnight till then" my friend!

May you find comfort and peace in knowing "we shall meet again."
God bless you this Sunday!





I journey forth rejoicing

From this dark vale of tears,
To heavenly joy and freedom,
From earthly bonds and fears;
Where Christ our Lord shall gather
All His redeemed again,
His kingdom to inherit.
Goodnight, goodnight till then!

Why thus so sadly weeping,
Beloved ones of my heart?
The Lord is good and gracious,
Though now He bids us part.
Oft have we met in gladness.
And we shall meet again,
All sorrow left behind us.
Goodnight, goodnight till then!

I go to see His glory,
Whom we have loved below:
I go, the blessed angels,
The holy saints to know.
Our lovely ones departed,
I go to find again,
And wait for you to join us.
Goodnight, goodnight till then!

I hear the Saviour calling,
The joyful hour has come:
The angel guards are ready
To guide me to our home,
Where Christ our Lord shall gather
All His redeemed again,
His kingdom to inherit.
Goodnight, goodnight till then!


Warmly, Carolina Mama
