The Little Country Church

Written by: DrJim Martin

There often is found, in many little towns,
A place where old-timers still gather around.
Not only old-timers, but “youngsters”, as well,
Especially on Sundays, they “stay for a spell.”

Some would argue, and say to you,
It’s because there’s nothing else to do.
This may satisfy a question in their mind,
I think, however, another reason you’ll find.

It’s here that folks have gathered, for years,
To sing, to worship, even shed a few tears.
It is here they sometimes bury their dead,
It is here they consistently hear the Word read.

It’s at this place, though rare to find,
People find solace and peace of mind.
It is here that the Bible is still believed,
And its message is, without doubt, received.
