Spell this for us... W.E L.O.V.E Y.O.U J.E.M.U.E.L

We remember our little Jemuel
Even as in our heart you shall dwell
A small bubble of light: A ceaseless flame,
Sparked, and left to burn in our hearts
For you:

Sweet melodies are being sung in heaven
On the arrival of the newest angel,
Born of Kay and Clarence - Your name Jemuel
Hearts are stolen by you, on earth and in Heaven

Jesus’ little brother, born of a loving mother
Up in heaven, sitting with Emanuel -
Sweet melodies are being sung in heaven
On the arrival of the newest angel:

Jesus loves you, am sure you could tell
Even as with him your spirit dwell.

“Boy” you’re with our sweet Jesus, up in heaven’s glory
So enjoy the gold and save us some castles,
Like those in mommy's bible story.

You can walk and you know how to spell
So spell this for us…
W.E L.O.V.E Y.O.U J.E.M.U.E.L.
