The Family Circle
In nineteen thirty-five a child named Jesse
Did not live to see the light of day;
For God the Father called him home to stay.
In nineteen fifty-eight the Lord took Gladys
To live there with the angels up on high,
Although it brought tears to her family's eyes.
In nineteen seventy-seven God called Elvis;
A man the world admired and loved so much;
He ruled the heart of every life he touched.
In nineteen seventy-nine was the last one taken,
The Lord called Vernon to his home above
To be there with the family that he loved.
And now they're all together up in heaven,
And they have never known a joy more sweet;
The Presley family circle finally is complete.
