Take with you a piece of my Heart,
To always let you know I care.
Take with you a piece of my Mind
To let you know that I'm always there.
Take with you a piece of my Voice
So you'll know and hear its tone.
Take with you a piece of my Soul
So that you know you're not alone.
Finally, take with you a piece of my hand to hold.
Wherever you may roam;
Until Jesus takes your other hand to lead you home.
