"ALL day and ALL night ANGELS are watching over the Deloatch Family"
"One of these days I’m going home to get my just reward, I know if I keep working I know I’ll get my pay
Just as soon as I can see this man, The one that set me free
That shown Judah up that mountain, That same man from Galilee
I know he’ll meet me, And I do believe he’ll greet me
Look at him standing with his arms wide open, Waiting there to welcome me
And I’ll be RESTING EASY..."
