THE ABANDONED CHURCH
Upon a hill, a lonely hill an abandoned church house
stands, This proud old church in years gone by was
built by willing hands.
With timber strong and steeple tall, a wood stove
warmed the few that sang by oil lamps on the wall
to cast light on wooden pews.
As years went by a furnace new and electricity
replaced the stove and oil lamps. Much better
“ all agreed”
As time went by this simple church served the
faithful few, until a modern church was built
with softly padded pews.
As years go by and folks pass on to rest upon
the hill, our proud old church with steeple tall
will still stand abandoned on the hill
Rev. Marie Yvonne.
