If You Knew
If you knew where I am standing
If you could see the sights I see
If you could hear the angels singing
The songs they sing eternally
If you knew the One I’m holding
Could see the smile He smiles at me
If you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me
I’m resting in the arms of Jesus
No other place would I rather be
So if you shed a tear
Please don’t shed it for me
For if you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me
