singing hallelujah! Walking through the
streets of gold; Worldy harm will ne'er
molest him; He is safe within the fold.
We loved him, yes, we loved him, But the angels loved him more,

gates were opened; A gentle voice said come; and with
farewells unspoken, He calmly entered home.
Written by one that love him, Ethelene Cherry.
