Just One More Day

Post by kkennedy » Wed Mar 24, 2010 1:37 am

I need help finding a really old Gospel or Bluegrass type hymn possibly entitled Just One More Day, the first line is " Oh dear Lord don't call me now for I am not Ready"
Thanks

Wow! I haven't thought about this song in years. I can remember my Mom singing it when I was just a kid. Thanks for bringing back some really good memories.
Here are the words as I remember them. Hope they're correct.

(1)
DO NOT CALL ME NOW DEAR LORD, FOR I'M NOT READY.
JUST A SOUL BE LOST AND I'LL BE CAST AWAY.
HEAR MY FEEBLE PLEA DEAR LORD, AND GIVE ME HEAVEN.
DON'T TURN ME DOWN, DEAR LORD JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE DAY.

(chorus)
ONE MORE DAY IS ALL I ASK, AND THEN I'LL JOURNEY.
SHINE THE LIGHT ACROSS MY PATH TO HEAVENS GATE
FOR THE SINS THAT I HAVE DONE, I'M NOW REPENTING.
DON'T TURN ME DOWN, DEAR LORD BUT GIVE ME ONE MORE DAY.
(2)
LORD I KNOW THAT I AM WEAK, AND I'M UNWORTHY
FOR TO CALL UPON YOUR HIGH AND HOLY NAME
BUT I BELIEVE THE BLOOD YOU SHED, WILL SAVE YOUR PEOPLE
AND I BELIEVE, THAT YOU WILL GIVE ME ONE MORE DAY.
(3)
OH DEAR MOTHER, I HAVE NOTHING HERE TO OFFER.
BUT A SOUL THAT BEAMS WITH JUST A FEEBLE RAY.
WILL IT GET ME O'ER THIS LAKE OF AWFUL DARKNESS
OR WILL I DIE, WITHOUT A CHANCE OF ONE MORE DAY.
(4)
ONE MORE DAY IS ALL I ASK, TO LIVE FOREVER.
HOLD MY HAND, AND LET ME HEAR THE FATHER SAY.
WRITE HIS NAME UPON THE SHINING BOOK,' O ANGEL
DON'T TURN ME DOWN, DEAR LORD BUT GIVE ME ONE MORE DAY.

Not sure if this is the key that you would sing it in, but this will give you the basic idea. Hope this helps.

I don't know why that came out that way. It was all in line when I pasted it.
If you'll send me your email address with the song title in the subject line I'll be happy to send it to you. My email is [email]bound_4_home1@yahoo.com[/email]

Keith.
