The Life of Mother Julene Nelson Clark
“May the works I've done speak for me. May the works I've done speak for me. When
I'm resting in my grave, there’s nothing to be said; May the works the works I've done, speak
for me. May the life I live speak for me. May the life I live speak for me. When the best I try to
live, my mistakes He will forgive; May the life the life I live speak for me.”
