Church by the Road
Often times in my memories I wondered again To the little old church by the road I could see the dear people and hear them so plain Singing songs of that blessed dear Lord I could hear my dear mother as she formidably prayed Blessed Jesus help me carry my load She was never downhearted never dismayed In that little old church by the road [Chorus] There my mother would pray And my sister was saved Singing sinners come and repent of your sins There the angels were crowded and the sisters would shout out And the bread was saved amen It was there I met Jesus and gave him my life It was there he took the weight off my load And he freely removed all my sorrow and strife In that little old church by the road I remember the preacher so gentle and brave As he told how the father above Gave his only son Jesus all the lost ones to save Such wonderful wonderful love I will always remember when the preacher would say Come to Jesus he'll lighten your load So often he preached of the life giving bread In that little old church by the road [Chorus] I could never forget all those lovely old songs That the people so joyfully sang How they told the Lord's message to sinners gone wrong And the echoes so joyfully rang I would always remember how I truly believed Jesus took all the weight off my load And the joy of salvation I truly received In that little old church by the road [Chorus]
