The Model Church Recorded by J.D. Crowe Written by Edwin O. Excell and John Yates
C F C G7 Well wife I've found a model church and worshiped there today C F C It made me think of the good old times before my hair was grey F C G7 The meeting house was finer built than they were years ago C F C But I found out when I went in it was not built for show
F C G7 The sexton did not set me down away back by the door C F C He knew that I was old and deaf and saw that I was poor F C G7 He must have been a Christian man he lead me boldly through C F C The long aisle of that crowded church to find a pleasant view
F C G7 I wish you'd heard the singing wife it had the old time ring C F C The preacher said with trumpet voice let all the people sing F C G7 Oh Coronation was the tune the music upward rolled C F C I thought I heard the angel choir strike on their harps of gold
F C G7 I tell you wife it did me good to sing those hymns once more C F C I felt just like some wrecked marine who gets a glimpse of shore F C G7 It made me want to lay aside this weather beaten form C F C And anchor in that blessed port forever from the storm
F C G7 Dear wife the toil will soon be o'er the victory soon be won C F C The shining strand is just ahead our race is nearly run F C G7 We're nearing Canaan's happy shore our hopes so bright and fair C F C Thank God we'll never sin again there'll be no sorrow there
G7 C F There'll be no sorrow there in heaven above where all is love C G7 C There'll be no sorrow there
