A New Little Girl In Heaven

 
 
"Oh, what do you think 
the angels say?,"
Said the children up in Heaven.
"There's a dear little girl coming Home  today,
She's almost ready to fly away
From the earth we use to live in.
Let us go and open the gates of pearl,
Open them wide for 
the new little girl,"
Said the children up in Heaven.

"God wanted her here where His little ones meet,"
Said the children up in Heaven.
"She will play with us in 
the golden street.
She has grown too fair; 
she has grown too sweet
For the world we used to live in.
She needs the sunshine, 
this little girl,
That gilds this side of 
the gates of pearl," 
Said the children up in Heaven.

"Far down on earth, 
do you hear them weep?", 
Said the children up in Heaven.
"For the dear little girl 
has gone to sleep,
The shadows fall and 
the night clouls sweep
O'er the earth we used to live in.
But we'll go and open the gate of pearl
Oh, why do they weep 
for their dear little girl?",
Said the children up in Heaven.

"Fly with her quickly, oh angels dear,"
Said the children up in Heaven.
"See, she's coming!
 Look there!  Look There!
At the jasper light on her sunny hair, 
Where the veiling clouds are riven!
Ah, hush, hush hush; 
all the swift wings furl!
For the King Himself at
the gates of pearl
Is taking her hand,
dear, sweet little girl
And leading her into Heaven.
