A living tribute to Margaret and Susie Elmore:
Thank you Lord for the sunshine today.
Thank you Lord for the rain at the beginning of day.
To remind us your love is always shining bright.
Though thoughts of gloom and sin are like night.
Though they fall like rain and leave despair.
When we accept you, there's not a cloud in the air.
Thank you dear Lord for Margaret and Susie Elmore.
Who we know are on your celestial shore.
Who would want more than all this day;
For all to come to you while they still may.
Her life was an example of what it's like to be saved.
Because she of sin was no longer a slave.
Always telling others of her Jesus then,
How she would be in heaven with him.
So come all you loved ones while you may.
And let someone show you the way
Her life here she did not waste,
She didn't want others the death of hell to taste.
She lived for others to try and save.
So her life goes on beyond the grave.
So this is what our Lord has meant,
That we could know to heaven she is sent.
To heaven she's gone, a place to reserve,
If here, her Lord you will serve.
You know not the joys that, are in store,
Until you meet Jesus and Margaret and Susie Elmore.
