The Old Country Church
      (J.W. Vaugh)

There's a place near to me
Where I'm longing to be
With my friends
At the old country church
There with mother we went
And our Sundays we spent
With our friends
At the old country church

Chorus:
Precious years of memories
Oh, what joy they bring to me
How I long once more to be
With my friends
At the old country church

As a small country boy
How my heart bet with joy
When I knelt
In the old country church
And the Savior above
By His wonderful love
Saved my soul
In the old country church

How I wish that today
All the people would pray
Like we prayed
In that old country church
If they'd only confess
Jesus surely would bless
As He did
In that old country church
