Well wife I found the model church and worshipped there today
It made me think of the good old times before my hair was grey.
The meeting house was finer built than they were years ago
But I found out when I went in it was not built for show.
The sexton did not sit me down away back by the door
He knew that I was old and deaf and saw that I was poor.
He must have been a Christian man, he led me boldly through
The long aisle of that crowded church to find a pleasant view.
I wish you'd heard the singing, wife, it had the old time ring
The preacher said like trumpets call, let all the people sing.
O Coronation was the tune, the music upward rolled
I thought I heard the angel choir strike on their harps of gold.
I tell you wife it did me good to sing those hymns once more
I felt just like some wrecked marine who gets a glimpse of shore.
It made me want to lay aside this weather-beaten form
And anchor in that blessed port forever from the storm.
Dear wife the toil will soon be o'er, the victory soon be won
The shining strand is just ahead, our race is nearly won.
We're near to Canaan's happy shore, our hopes are bright and fair
Thank God we'll never sin again, there'll be no sorrow there.
There'll be no sorrow there
In heaven above, where all is love
There'll be no sorrow there.
