Dear Companion

1992 Words and Music by Terry Scott Taylor, Harold Wayne and Greg Kellogg
Recorded by Mercy River for their album "Coyote Moon" (1992)
Now I must be on My way (In Spirit I will comfort you)
You must be strong now, watch and pray My love
My dear companion

Be faithful to the very end (And I'll prepare a place for you)
And I promise I will come again My love
My dear companion

(Chorus 1):
Please don't cry (Though this may be your darkest night)
Wipe the tears from your eyes (And dress yourself in virgin white)
You will live to see the day I take you home
My dear companion

And though this parting brings you pain (You must let your heart be still)
In silence I will speak your name My love
My dear companion

(Chorus 2):
Rain will fall (My Word's a fire to keep you warm)
Through it all (I'll be your shelter from the storm)
You will live to see the day I take you home
My dear companion

(Repeat chorus 1)

Now I must be on My way (My dear companion)
Now I must be on My way ...
