I dreamt death came the other night|
And heaven's gate swung wide;
With kindly grace an angel came
To usher me inside.
Yet there to my astonishment
Stood folks I'd known on earth,
Some I had judged as quite unfit
Or of but little worth.
Indignant words rose to my lips
But never were set free;
For every face showed stunned surprise
NO ONE expected me!
