The Country Church                                      
by J D Bedwell

That old country church has stood                   
like a beacon for souls since 1941.      
Through many a blowing storm or the merciless  blazing Texas sun.
"Onward Christian Soldiers" and "Amazing Grace"                     
have been heard a million times, in this dear ol" place.
Loved one prayed for sons and daughters In a war"s harm"s way.
Longing for a safe returning day.
Farmers and  cowmen  prayed with calloused knees & bloody tears,       
during the time we didn"t have rain for seven years.
These old walls have heard it all,                    
from the prideful to the down trod.         
For the dear Lord Jesus abides, in this country house of God.
