Are All The Children In Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: Hymns By Johnny Cash

When I'm alone I often think of an old house on the hill
Of a big yard hedged in roses where we ran and played at will
And when the night time brought us home hushing our merry din
Mother would look around and ask are all the children in
Well it's been many a year now and the old house on the hill
No longer has my mother's care and the yard is still so still
But if I listen I can hear it all no matter how long it's been
I seem to hear my mother ask are all the children in
And I wonder when the curtain falls on that last earthly day
When we say goodbye to all of this to our pain and work and play
When we step across the river where mother so long has been
Will we hear ask her a final time are all the children in (I come)

I love these words, remind me of my Gran, and also how our Heavenly Father 'counts' all of us in! He never misses one of us!

This song reminds me of what dad used to tell us while he lived here below. It's almost August 5th, the day he left us. I'm gonna use this song.. Great lyrics..inspirational

There is one grammatical error in these lyrics. In the last line, the words ARE and HER should be transposed. (or switch places)
by Basil van Lange on 11/12/2012 1:54am
Pardon my error. The words are ASK and HER; not ARE and Her, to switch places in the last line of the song.
Thank you.
