Old Fashioned Church on the Hill
Copyright, 1881. by T. B. Harms & Co.
There's an old fashioned house in the country,
There's an old fashioned couple live there;
There's an old fashioned gate by the old country road,
And an oldl fashioned man near the chair;
An old fashioned woman is sitting there,
Darning an old pair of hose;
With her old fashioned cap on her old fashioned head,
Am she's dressed in her old fashioned clothes.
Hear those bells, those merry bells.
And they fill my soul with a thrill;
'Tis the old fashioned sound from them old fashioned bells.
In that old fashioned church on the hill.
There's an old fashioned clock on that old whitewashed wall,
Withi its old fashioned pendulum and hands;
There's an old wooden bench by that old fireplace,
With its bright copper kettles and pans;
An old fashioned man is sitting there.
Smoking his old fashioned clay.
With his old favorite dog sitting close by his side,
Watching the children at play. - Chorus.
Heaven bless that dear old pair, may they live for many years,
In that dear little house in the lane;
May they never know a care, but all happiness to share,
And think of the dear, old happy days;
The same I wish to you, with a heart of conscience true,
May you live, yes, for many, many years;
May you never want for wealth, but enjoy the best of health,
It is the earnest wish I give to you. - Chorus.
