Excerpt from The Old Church, and Other Poems

The Old Church.

"Home Coming Day", August 9, 1919.

I'm coming home to the dear old Church
Which is calling us to day;
I am thinking of the dear old friends,
And those that have passed away.

I come to worship within the Church,
Where I have worshipped before;
My spirit free from age and decay,
Is Young as in days of yore.

I come to mingle with you my friends,
In the sacred grounds to roam,
And tho' many the changes time has made,
I think I shall feel at home.

In Virginia's loveliest valley,
Hill country, beautiful land,
This Church has long for a witness stood,
A servant at God's command.

May it keep the faith, uphold the truth,
Its garments be white and clean,
Until the Lord in his glory come,
Whatever the night between.

And the little children of the Church,
Whom the Savior loves so well,
May they gather at his table soon
And his praises learn to tell.

I wish you a splendid gala day,
Within the Church that you love,
United in Christ to each other,
A type of the Church above.
