He slipped away so quietly
We didn't see him go.
Why God needed him in Heaven,
Is something we can't know.
He left a host of words behind,
To bless us from now on.
He signed them with the name Deleeme,
But it's David White who's gone.
He was heartily welcomed, this we know,
When he came to Heaven's gate.
He loved the Lord with all his heart,
God wouldn't make him wait.
I'm sure the doors were opened wide
For him, a favorite son,
And now in Heaven he abides.
His work on Earth is done.
We'll miss you dear David.
