1 There"s a church in the valley by the wildwood,No lovelier spot in the dale;No location is therefore dear to my childhoodAs the tiny brown church in the vale.

Refrain:Come come the church in the wildwood,Oh, concerned the church in the vale;No point out is for this reason dear to my childhoodAs the tiny brown church in the vale.

2 Oh, involved the church in the wildwood,To the trees where the wild flower bloom;Where the parting hymn will certainly be chanted,We will certainly weep through the next of the tomb.

3 how sweet ~ above a clear Sunday morning,To perform to the clean ringing bell;Its tones therefore sweetly are calling,Oh, involved the church in the vale.

4 from the church in the valley by the wildwood,When day fades away into might,I would certainly fain from this spot of my childhoodWing my way to the mansions of light. Source: Hymns because that a Pilgrim People: a congregational hymnal #306
