Oak Grove Church (Reno & Harrell) G There's an old church so dear Standing lonesome and still D7 G And in memory it's still to me A place still so sweet where I heard as a boy The old hymn 'Near My God to Thee' (Chorus) G Oh, the wonderful, beautiful memories untold (Oh, the memories untold) C G In that old precious Oak Grove of old (Oak Grove of old) D7 G Will live on 'til the end of time Oh, the wonderful, heavenly savior was there (Oh, the savior was there) Gather us each time that old church bell would toll (Each time that bell tolled) Looking for his lost sheep to find. Then I heard Mother sing, and I heard Daddy pray With the tears running down their face Many now have passed on Whose souls there were saved While we all sang 'Amazing Grace.' There's still an Oak Grove where I played as a boy And I'm sure there is still a well And I know every spring sweeter still the birds sing Some will nest in the old church bell.
