As the twilight shadows deepen
Where the weeping willow waves
All alone in tears I'm kneeling
O'er my sweetheart's lonely grave.

Chorus:
I am asking God's forgiveness
For you're waiting there I know
Out beyond that blue horizon
Just across the bridge of gold.

I regret those words I've spoken
Every yesterday of tears
That I caused you little darling
As we wandered through the years.

Chorus:
I am asking God's forgiveness
For you're waiting there I know
Out beyond that blue horizon
Just across the bridge of gold.

If I'd only read your letter
Saying you were in despair
That your weary heart was broken
And in pain was lying there.

Chorus:
I am asking God's forgiveness
For you're waiting there I know
Out beyond that blue horizon
Just across the bridge of gold.

I tonight would not be weeping
O'er the roses on your grave
But instead dear I'd be happy
And this sorrow I'd have saved.

Chorus:
I am asking God's forgiveness
For you're waiting there I know
Out beyond that blue horizon
Just across the bridge of gold.

If I only would have listened
When you told me not to stray
But I said I loved another
Left you there and went away.

Chorus:
I am asking God's forgiveness
For you're waiting there I know
Out beyond that blue horizon
Just across the bridge of gold.

Now my life is sad and lonely
Down life's path I trudge along
But I'll meet you up in heaven
When from this old world I've gone.

Chorus:
I am asking God's forgiveness
For you're waiting there I know
Out beyond that blue horizon
Just across the bridge of gold...
