Remembering Old Gertrude . . .

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

 

 

She went to sleep one night, Never here to awake again, 


But everything was alright, Between her and Him, 

So she awoke in Heaven’s courtyard, 

Free from pain within, The angels gathered around her, 

And took her by the hand. 

Serenaded by angels, Up to the throne, 
Serenaded by angels, Finally at home, 
Surrounded by praises, To the King, 
Welcome to Paradise, The angels did sing. 

Now, I close my eyes at night, And I try to imagine, 

That city of brilliant light, Waiting for me, 

But my mind can not conceive, So I’ll continue to dream, 

Till I’m transported there, Then I will be. . .

Serenaded by angels, Up to the throne, 
Serenaded by angels, Finally at home, 
Surrounded by praises, To the King, 
Welcome to Paradise, The angels did sing.

  1. Isn’t it wonderful to know that’s probably exactly what happened to them!?!?   I’ve sung this very song at a couple of funerals, but I reserve it for the ones that I’m just SURE, that’s what happened with them and not for wishy washy Christians.

  2. I’m sure she was blessed to have spent her last years and days in your loving care.  Peace to you all.
