The Old Country Church

This song is by The Hee Haw Gospel Quartet and appears on the album Hee Haw Gospel Quartet (1994).

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 were spent
With my friends at the old country church

Precious years of memories
Oh what joy they bring to me (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 beat 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

Precious years of memories
Oh what joy they bring to me (they bring to me)
How I long once more to be
With my friends at the old country church...

Of't my thoughts make me weep, for so many now sleep
In their graves near the old country church
And sometime I may rest, with the friends I love best
In a grave near the old country church

Precious years of memories
Oh what joy they bring to me (they bring to me)
How I long once more to be
With my friends at the old country church...

How I wish that today all the people would pray
As we prayed in the old country church
If they'd only confess, Jesus surely would bless
As he did in the old country church

Precious years of memories
Oh what joy they bring to me (they bring to me)
How I long once more to be
With my friends at the old country church...
