(God put a song in the heart of an angel and softly she sang it to me)
Of the old home place where I grew up of the days both good and bad
I used to walk four miles to school every day through the rain the sleet and the cold
For the things that his family would need
And yet and somehow our homefire never flickered once
Mama took the hymn book down and mama sang a song
I've been rocked to sleep many a night to the tune of What a Friend
Then daddy'd reach up and take the Bible down and he'd read it
And I always felt that maybe our home was blessed
Sister left home first I guess then Bob and Tommy and Dan
But it seemed that when dad grew weak mom's faith grew strong
(Rock of ages cleft for me let me hide myself in Thee)
No voice is left to fill those halls no steps to grace the floor
But I'll always believe that this old world is a whole lot better place
