The world you let just left behind are yearning for you,
the moment of you linger on, and your family are thinking of you.
You're all they ever wanted, and wishes that you could stay a little while,
Their heart reached out for you but you've gone, fly with the wind,
to meet with you maker, your savior and Lord (Christ Jesus).
Who have promised and assured that to live is for Christ, but to die is your gain; that you might inherit his kingdom prepared for you before the foundations of the world.
Farewell Whitney, until the dark times start to fade away,
farewell Whitney until the mountain-high, and valley-low be no more,
and until the lily at the mountain valley forever fade-away.
