Mother's religion

Representative Text

1 I was young, but I remember; as I sat at mother’s knee,
How she taught me from the Bible, of Christ who died for me,
She said, my boy, trust Jesus, his grace will set you free,
Seek the Old Time Religion,
For ‘tis good enough for me.

‘Tis the Old Time Religion,
‘Tis the Old Time Religion
‘Tis the Old Time Religion;
And ‘tis good enough for me.

2 Years have pass’d since mother’s spirit winged its flight to yon bright shore,
I have tasted life’s pure fountain, am saved for evermore,
Whene’er I meet with trials, I now each day can see
That the Old Time Religion,
Still is good enough for me. [Refrain]

3 When the shadows gather round me, at the closing of life’s day,
Then the Old Time Religion will be my guide and stay,
When I cross death’s turbid river my Saviour’s face I see
Then the Old Time Religion
Will be good enough for me. [Refrain]
