Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American country music singer. Her 1952 hit recording, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts, and turned her into the first female country star. Her Top 10 hits continued until the mid-1960s, inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s. more »

What a beautiful thought I am thinking 
Concerning a great speckled bird
Remember her name is recorded 
On the pages of God's holy word
Desiring to lower her standards 
They watch every move that she makes
They long to find fault with her teaching 
But really they found no mistakes

I am glad I have learned of her meekness 
I am proud that my name is in the book
For I want to be one never fearing 
On the face of my Saviour true look
When he comes descending from heaven 
On the cloud that he write in his word
I'll be joyfully carried to meet him 
On the wings of the great speckled bird
