If you know Dock­e­ry’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


I am on my way to glory,
To that happy home above;
I believe the blessèd story
Of the Savior and His love.


’Twill be glory, wondrous glory,
When we reach the other shore;
’Twill be glory, wondrous glory,
Praising Jesus evermore.

Through each danger He will lead me
By His wondrous power divine;
Manna sweet He’ll daily feed me—
All His blessings now are mine.


I am on my way to glory,
Where with loved ones I shall stay;
I shall sing salvation’s story,
While the ages roll away.
