"The Church In The Oaks"

A small country Church

nestled deep in the Oaks

The people who go there--

just simple folks.

 Jesus died on a tree

that was much like these.

It wasn't the world

that he came to please--

But to bring salvation

to those on their knees.

Truly Thankful, this little Church

nestled deep in the Oaks

That He did what He did--

For just simple folks!
