Vintage Gwen Chapel-Heaven Welcomes A Saint

It's been almost a month since a very dear lady in our church went home to heaven.  
She fought tongue cancer for about a year.  
She was sweet but still a powerful prayer, an encourager, a blesser.  
She always made sure to give me a hug anytime she saw me.  I already miss her.  
She also could write beautifully.  Her Christmas cards were always handmade with a poem she had written. She knew the power of words.  
So today in honor of one spectacular lady I want to share a worship song that she wrote.  When she wrote it, she took it to a very talented young ORU student who put music to what she'd penned.  Sorry I don't have a recording of it but the words speak for themselves.  

Through The Ages
Dorothy Young

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Hallelujah to the King
We will honor, trust and praise You
Through the ages we will sing

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah to the King
You are holy, You are holy
Through the ages
Through the ages we will sing

We lift our voice
We lift our song
We lift our praise 
To honor You

Have a blessed weekend.

What a beautiful song. Sorry to hear about your loss. It's amazing how much people bless our lives, isn't it?
