I Hear A Sweet Voice Calling

Song Author Bill Monroe Performer: Bill Monroe Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Our little girl taken [G7]sick one [C]evening
As [F]she walked home from [C]school
And [F]then her deathbed soon [C]claimed her
It made us so [G7]sad and so [C]blue

Then she called me [G7]close to her [C]bedside
And [F]whispered these words soft and [C]low  
Tell [F]mommy to come to me [C]quickly
I want to kiss you [G7]both and [C]go  


I hear a sweet voice calling
Way up in [G7]Heaven on [C]high
God has made [C7]room for your [F]daughter
Oh [C]mommy and [G7]daddy don't [C]cry  

Take care of [G7]little [C]brother
[F]Tell him I've gone to [C]rest
I [F]know his little heart is [C]broken
He's all that [G7]you have [C]left

Then she closed [G7]her eyes [C]forever
[F]Never to see us no [C]more
[F]Until we meet our [C]darling
On that bright and [G7]peaceful [C]shore


I hear a sweet voice calling
Way up in [G7]Heaven on [C]high
God has made [C7]room for your [F]daughter
Oh [C]mommy and [G7]daddy don't [C]cry  


I hear a sweet voice calling
Way up in [G7]Heaven on [C]high
God has made [C7]room for your [F]daughter
Oh [C]mommy and [G7]daddy don't [C]cry  


Our little girl taken sick one evening
As she walked home from school
And then her deathbed soon claimed her
It made us so sad and so blue

Then she called me close to her bedside
And whispered these words soft and low
Tell mommy to come to me quickly
I want to kiss you both and go

I hear a sweet voice calling
Way up in Heaven on high
God has made room for your daughter
Oh mommy and daddy don't cry

Take care of little brother
Tell him I've gone to rest
I know his little heart is broken
He's all that you have left

Then she closed her eyes forever
Never to see us no more
Until we meet our darling
On that bright and peaceful shore

I hear a sweet voice calling
Way up in Heaven on high
God has made room for your daughter
Oh mommy and daddy don't cry

I hear a sweet voice calling
Way up in Heaven on high
God has made room for your daughter
Oh mommy and daddy don't cry
