The Old Time Religion

Yet a little while is the light
with you.Walk while ye have the
light. Least darkness come upon
you;for he that walketh in
darkness knoweth not
whither he goeth
John 12-35

The best kind of religion
is the old time kind.
If you want to know how I know
its right there in the bible
If you read it you Will find.
you don't have to ware a bracelet
or a colored string on your arm.
Its not a fancy religion
but it works just like a charm.
It don't cost a lot of money
just give what you can.
The old time religion
puts God in the heart of men.
IT makes you love your neighbor
and will turn your life around.
It will keep your feet planted
firmly in God's holy ground.
All you need is a talk with God
you don't need a telephone
And it matters not where.
It can be in the desert
or on a mountain
He will always be at home.
God's love is every where
just waiting for you.
To drink from his fountain
It takes the power of GOD
and the old time religion
to make a soul all new
