Looking for 2 very old song lyrics and music - Oh, hand me down the silver trumpet Gabriel

I am desperately looking for 2 old songs my mom taught me when I was a young girl growing up in India.
1. Oh, hand me down the silver trumpet Gabriel.
2. There's a word of tender beauty in the sayings of our Lord.

Here is "Silver Trumpet."

Well, I've never been to Heaven, but I've been told,
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Gabriel;
The gates are made of pearl and the streets are
made of gold,
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Lord.

Chorus
O hand me down, O hand me down,
O hand me down my silver trumpet, Gabriel
Send it down, hand it down,
Any ol' way, just get it down
Hand me down my silver trumpet Lord.

If religion were a thing that money could buy
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Gabriel;
The rich would live and the poor would die,
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Lord.

Well now, if you want a silver trumpet like mine,
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Gabriel:
You'd better learn to play it in plenty of time,
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Lord.

Hope this helps!

The chorus of "There's a word of tender beauty in the saying of our Lord," goes llke this- In my father's blessed keeping I am happy safe and free, for his eye is on the sparrow, are ye not much more than they."

For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Thanks for the lyrics.I like this song exept for the part where you sing "the rich would live and the poor would die" I'm singing this in honor choir and the cds they give you is so quiet and the singer that sings it is terrible.
