Another Leaf Has Fallen
Another leaf has fallen another soul has gone.
But still we have God’s promises,
in every robin’s song.
For she is in His heaven,
and though He takes away,
He always leaves to mortals,
the bright sun’s kindly ray.
He leaves the fragrant blossoms,
and lovely forest, green.
And gives us new found comfort,
when we on Him will lean.

We would also like to thank Charles McClellan Funeral of Qunicy, Florida, Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Inc., and Shiloh Baptist Church.
