The Songs that we Loved

Written by Diana Perry Gillette

I’d like to go back to the days when I was growing up
We never had much money, but we were blessed with lots of love
I still recall the many times we’d let our voices ring
When we’d gather ’round that little home, and we’d begin to sing

We sang Peace in the Valley, and Love lifted Me
When the Roll is Called up Yonder I’ll Be There
I will meet you in the Morning, In the Sweet By and By
Those were the songs that we loved and shared

Though many years have come and gone, it seems like yesterday
When mama called the children in as she would start to pray
We bowed our heads and we gave our thanks for we had everything
When we’d gather ’round that little home and we’d begin to sing
