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]
