When we received the
That Sister Della Hughes,
Had gone on to be with the Lord,
For her family I felt bad.
But, I couldn't feel sad,
For she will receive a great reward!
You see, Jesus went to prepare,
Her a mansion over there,
In that city John saw coming down!
And as a part of Christ's bride,
She will stand by His side,
In a beautiful robe and crown!
I'm so glad we met,
I shall never forget,
How sister Della was always the same.
As through this life she trod,
Her mind was on serving God.
She had no thought of worldly fame.
Life dealt Sister Della some severe blows.
But, God in Heaven knows,
With His help she made it through!
She was able to stand,
By holding to His hand.
The Holy Ghost was her Comforter too!
She was proud of Brother Bennie, her son,
And the work he has done,
Winning souls for Jesus our Lord.
Ah, one day soon again they'll meet,
On Heaven's beautiful golden street,
And share that Heavenly reward!
