When God Comes And Gathers His Jewels Lyrics

Artist: Merle Haggard
Album: Songs For The Mama That Tried

When the ceremony was over a lad stood alone in tears
For he had just said goodbye to the one he had loved through the years
He stood all alone with his head bowed down as though his heart would break
The parson came over and took his hand and to him these words he did say
When God comes and gathers his jewels all his treasures of diamonds and gold
You'll meet her up there in heaven so fair when God comes and gathers his jewels

Every night when the pale moon is shining you can see this lad all alone
With his eyes lifted up toward heaven he's repeating these words he was told
When God comes and gathers his jewels...
[ fiddle ]
When God comes and gathers his jewels...
