If Church Pews Could Talk

As I walked through the front door of this little house of the Lord

All of the pews were empty and the sense of peace I truly did adore

 

The wood work of many years ago truly make this a special space

The flags hang next to the windows and the Pulpit in its special place

 

The pews with their red cushions and aged wood polished to its best

All I could think about is how many people they have given needed rest

 

This church’s history it has seen happiness and sorrow for more than a few

How many hurting people have gained comfort sitting in these old pews

 

The church lawn is still immaculate with a cemetery on the grounds

There is a statue of our Lord and Savior and white rail fence around

 

Nothing could give me more comfort than when around this church I walk

Just thinking about the life stories of others if only these pews could talk

 

From My World To Yours,

Bob Baker
