Posted:  06 Jul 2006 02:54
I would love to have the lyrics to this song.  All I know is that it sounds like an old bluegrass gospel song. I'm not sure who sings or sang it(other than a man who visited our church). The only lyrics,I think, the chorus is "Leave behind, oh leave behind.....after i leave(soar?) to worlds unknown, what will i leave behind?" Any help would be very much appreciated..thanx alot, debbie

1.] After I leave for worlds unknown over the border line never again on earth to roam what will I leave behind.

Chorus.] Leave behind, yes leave behind what will I leave behind after I leave for worlds unknown what will I leave behind.

2.] will I be missed by those I love or have I been unkind have I been true to God above what will I leave behind.

3.] This is my prayer oh Lord today let me be holy thine and when I am called from earth away let Heaven then be mine.

Debbie, i really love this song also. This is a very important question we all can ask ourselves.  God Bless You,    Sherry    p.s. there is a web site called calvinclark.com and it has a lot of song lyrics on it in alphabetical order...just thought you might be interested in it.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to not only post these lyrics, but also for the website info. I have not checked it out yet,(my computer is not running quite like it should since my teenage daughter has been on here last) but it sounds like something i will really enjoy.
    I do believe as u do that this is a very important question that this song asks.  I think it is probably the next most important right after, "Where will I spend eternity?" 
    Again, I thank you and God Bless...now I wont have to sing the same lines over and over..debbie
