The Last Mile of the Way Ė Oatman & Marks

 

    C                                                G                G7                                    C

1) If I  walk   in  the path-way  of duty,    If I work  till the close of the day,
2) If for Christ I proclaim the glad story,  If I seek for His sheep  gone astray,
3) Here the dearest of ties we must sever, Tears of sorrow are  seen  evĎry day;
4) And if here  I  have  earnestly striven, And have tried all His  will  to  obey,


                                    C7               F                              C                  G7              C

1) I shall see the great King in His beauty, When Iíve gone the last mile of the way.

2) I   am   sure  He  will show me His glory, When Iíve gone the last mile of the way.

3) But  no  sick-ness,  no sigh-ing for-ever,  When Iíve gone the last mile of the way.

4) íTwill en-hance all the rapture of heaven, When Iíve gone the last mile of the way.

 

Chorus                           A7            Dm  G∆  C    G7                                C

When Iíve gone the last mile of the way,  I   will  rest at the close of the day;


                                  C7              F                              C                   G7             C 

And I know there are joys that a-wait me, When Iíve gone the last mile of the way.
