While sitting in the wooden pews,
in our beautiful country church,
with the windows open to summer,
I can see fields of corn and soybeans;
rows of apple trees rolling up the hills;
the pastor's stone house built in 1910.
When the sun shines through in any season,
the stained glass windows come alive with color,
bring Bible stories alive for the congregation.
