The Mighty Clouds of Joy

The Mighty Clouds of Joy is an American traditional gospel quartet. more »

I was standing by my window 
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling 
For to carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken 
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

I said to that undertaker  Undertaker please drive slow
For this lady you are carrying 
Lord, I hate to see here go

Will the circle be unbroken 
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Oh, I followed close behind her
 Tried to hold up and be brave 
But I could not hide my sorrow 
When they laid her in the grave 

Will the circle be unbroken 
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

I went back home, my home was lonesome  Missed my mother, she was gone
All of my brothers, sisters crying
What a home so sad and lone

Will the circle be unbroken 
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

We sang the songs of childhood  Hymns of faith that made us strong 
Ones that mother Maybelle taught us
Hear the angels sing along 

Will the circle be unbroken 
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken 
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
