Mrs. Addie Blount Obituary

God is the joy and the strength of my life, Removes all pain, misery and strife,
He promised to keep me, never to leave me, He'll never, never fall short of His word.
I've got to fast and pray, stay in that narrow way, keep my life clean every day,
I want to go with Him, when He comes back, I've come too far, and I'll never turn back.
God is my all and all.
