Mattie Wingate

March 18, 1923 — July 8, 2019

Angels speak most every day
Listen gently while they pray
Guiding you with
special love
They were sent from God above
They will shelter you with care
They will hover everywhere
When it's time for you to sleep
That's when you will hear them speak
Saying words you want to hear
Feel their presence very near
Touched by love, without a doubt

An Angel's whisper singing out
Hear God's beauty as you rest
Music that is at it's best
Harmony from Heaven's sky
Angel words of love from high.
