“ And then one day I’ll cross the River,
I’ll fight life’s war with pain,
And then as death gives way to victory,
I’ll see the light of glory and I’ll know He lives.”
This was the last verse of the song “ Because He lives” that we sang at the graduation banquet in 1983 before Dr Haggai addressed us. “ Thank you, men” was his deep appreciative response. No less for us was the complimentary feeling. Little did we know that 37 years later, he would see the lights of glory.
What a welcome there is for this very faithful servant , and a “ goodbye” and sweet remembrance from us down below.
Requiescet in pace, John Edmund Haggai.
