0 - Bessie Jones (about how she used to imagine what these angels would look like): I used to think that these angels would look just like you and me, but since I came to read and understand that those angels are mighty, I've come to dread seeing one. " She introduces"'Lay Your Head In The Window." "The old folks really meant what they were praying and singing, every inch of it."
