"ON ANGELS' WINGS"
When I was just a little girl, you held me on your knee,
And talked about your heavenly home, so real I could almost see
Those streets of gold, the Father's house,
That clear and crystal stream,
The angels gathered 'round the throne, it seemd just like a dream.
Then I was grown and gone from home, I missed you oh so much,
When times were hard and I was down, I hungered for your touch;
I thought you'd always be around, but then the sickness came,
And one sad day the angels came and called you by your name.
Then you were carried away on angels wings
To behold the Father's face,
And now you sing in the heavenly choir
of God's amazing grace.
Though I can't see your smile today
Yet still my heart can sing,
And some day soon we'll be rejoined
When I'm carried away on angels' wings.
Since you've been gone my world has changed, oh how I loved you so,
The pain I feel within my heart, the Savior only knows;
You told me of His precious love, His pain on Calvary,
I'm looking forward to the day when heaven I shall see.
And I'll be carried away on angels wings,
To behold our Father's face,
I'll join you in that heavenly choir
And sing, "Amazing Grace!"
And on that day I'll see your smile
Oh how my heart will sing,
We'll have a grand reunion there
When I'm carried away on angels wings!
