​Church By The Road

This song is by Dry Branch Fire Squad.

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

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

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 could never forget all those lovely old songs

That the people so joyfully sang

How they told the lords 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

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
