Young girl running with a kite in an open field.

In The Country

Lord give me happiness in the country

Where the birds sing softly and sweet

And neighbors are always friendly

At gatherings where they meet

Everythings lively bright with day-song

In the summer's golden sun

Children play all day long

And they seem to have such fun

They climb upon tall hay stacks

And chew on stems of straw

Then slide down the mossy track

On our back looking at grandpa

The beautiful juicy ripe fruit

Is picked with pure delight

Grapes and apples are a many super-fruit

What a wonderful glorious sight

God made the country fair

And filled it with his grace

My heart will always be there

In that splendid glorious place.
