Until Then

G7           C                    G7
My heart can sing when I pause to remember
                                   C
A heartache here is but a stepping stone
G7      C                           F
Along a trail thatís winding always upward,
              C            G7       C      F   C
This troubled world is not my final home.

Chorus:
          G7                       C
But until then my heart will go on singing,
     G                         C
Until then with joy Iíll carry on.
    G7	  A7     C7              F
Until the day my eyes behold the city,
D#ļ7      C       G7       C     F   C
Until the day God calls me home.


The things of earth will dim and lose their value
If we recall theyíre borrowed for a while;
And things of earth that cause the heart to tremble,
Remember there will only bring a smile.


This weary world with all its toil and struggle
May take its toll of misery and strife;
The soul of man is like a waiting falcon;
When itís released itís destined for the skies.

Until Then

G                                  D7
My heart can sing  when I pause to remember

                                    G
A heartache here  is but a stepping stone

                       G7             C
Along the trail that's winding always upward

              G         D7           G
This troubled world  is not my final home

 
          D7                        G
But until then  my heart will go on singing

      D7                        G
Until then  with joy I'll carry on

                  G7               C
Until the day  my eyes behold that city

          G       D7       G
Until the day God calls me home

                                               D7
The things I've earned will dim and lose their value

                                     G
This weary toil  it's borrowed for a while

                            G7                C
The things I've earned that cause my heart to tremble

         G         D7            G
Remember they will only bring us by
