I'll Walk With You
(As Far As I Can)
 

Mary and Mom
 
 

I'll walk with you as far as I can.
I'll dry your tears, I'll hold your hand.
But when you find yourself in your deepest grief.
There's no earthly thing, that can give relief.

Only God, in His mercy and love.
Can reach way down, from Heaven above.
And hold you in His arms so strong.
On this hard path, He'll guide you along.

And when she's resting in His love so sweet.
You'll know her life on this earth is complete.
Then you can rest knowing, you did your best.
And up to God you left the rest.

There'll be no regrets for you my dear friend.
You'll know you went through this with her to the end.
In glory one day, when Jesus you meet.
You'll have a crown to cast at his feet.

When the going gets rough and you think you can't stand.
Just know she'll soon be in a better land.
I'll dry your tears, I'll hold your hand.
I'll walk with you as far as I can.
