10. The Church Meeting

1919: The Ballad of Rexford
by Mark Lee Townsend



 

Come to the church meeting,
friends
The doors are now open we
welcome you in
Take your place in the row
be part of the fold
Here with the old and the
young
We’ll pray with the other
saints
of which we’re among
We’ll dream of that glorious
day when we’ll walk streets
of gold
Here is goodness outside the
madness
of a world that’s wrapped up
in sadness
In the truth is an end to
injustice
If you want it, it can be yours
Here is my most holy of
places as I see the joy on the
faces
Of the ones who leave all at
the altar
Ready to face up to life
outside
of these doors
Settle your hearts and your
minds
And open your bibles, we’ll
read
through these lines
Learning the lessons of life
from
those gone before us
Maybe your burden wears
long
Won’t you come forward as
we sing a song
There’s no shame in the
sinner
asking forgiveness
We all need forgiveness
Here is goodness outside the
madness of
a world that’s wrapped up in
sadness
In the truth is an end to
injustice
If you want it, it can be yours
Here is my most holy of
places
as I see the joy on the faces
Of the ones who leave all at
the altar
Ready to face up to life
Ready to face up to life
Ready to face up to life
outside
of these doors
Come to the church meeting
(come to our church)…
