Old Camp Meetin' Time

This song is by Grandpa Jones and appears on the album Grandpa Jones Remembers the Brown's Ferry Four (1966).

Long ago when but a boy at old camp meeting time
How my heart would leap for joy to hear the old bells chime
Calling all the saints of God into the house of prayer
Oh such praying singing and shouting for the Lord was there

I like the old time preaching praying singing shouting
I like the old time reading of God's word
I like to hear those old time Hallelujah stories
I like the old time worship of the Lord

Preaching in those good old days were filled with a holy flame
Preaching for the souls of men and not for worldly fame
Under such old fashion preaching sinner fell to pray
And the Lord would save them in that good old fashion way

I like the old time preaching praying singing shouting
I like the old time reading of God's word
I like to hear those old time Hallelujah stories
I like the old time worship of the Lord

In these latter days they say that there is no use to pray
All we need is to think religion 'tis a better way
But I'm here to tell you brother Jesus saves from sin
In that old time way He saved me He now dwells within

I like the old time preaching praying singing shouting
I like the old time reading of God's word
I like to hear those old time Hallelujah stories
I like the old time worship of the Lord
