“BILLY GRAHAM” – by Terry Scott Taylor/Camarillo Eddy

I don’t know about those other guys
There’s somethin’ in the back of their eyes
But Billy, you’re the man
Who don’t use slight of hand
Ain’t wearin’ no disguise
I love you, Billy.

I love the simple things you say
And you never seem to get in the way
No one is quite like you
Compassionate and true
“Just as I am”, I say
I love you, Billy.

Note: Billy’s grandson Tullian Tchividjian is celebrating “Daddy Bill’s” birthday over at his blog. Feel free to drop on over to read or add to the comments.

    Mary – I am sorry, I did not see your comment before. I could not find a poem, but Billy does quote this hymn. Perhaps this is what you were looking for?

    HOLY, HOLY, IS WHAT THE ANGELS SING
    Words: John­son Oat­man, Jr., 1894.
    Music: John R. Swe­ney

    There is singing up in Heaven such as we have never known,
    Where the angels sing the praises of the Lamb upon the throne,
    Their sweet harps are ever tuneful, and their voices always clear,
    O that we might be more like them while we serve the Master here!

    Refrain:
    Holy, holy, is what the angels sing,
    And I expect to help them make the courts of heaven ring;
    But when I sing redemption’s story, they will fold their wings,
    For angels never felt the joys that our salvation brings.

    But I hear another anthem, blending voices clear and strong,
    “Unto Him Who hath redeemed us and hath bought us,” is the song;
    We have come through tribulation to this land so fair and bright,
    In the fountain freely flowing He hath made our garments white.

    Refrain

    Then the angels stand and listen, for they cannot join the song,
    Like the sound of many waters, by that happy, blood washed throng,
    For they sing about great trials, battles fought and vict’ries won,
    And they praise their great Redeemer, who hath said to them, “Well done.”

    Refrain

    So, although I’m not an angel, yet I know that over there
    I will join a blessed chorus that the angels cannot share;
    I will sing about my Savior, who upon dark Calvary
    Freely pardoned my transgressions, died to set a sinner free.

    Refrain
