Lyrics

  1. 1. I always have a happy feeling
    When I go to church.
    The organ plays so soft and sweet;
    I tiptoe softly to my seat.
    My teachers and my friends I greet
    When I go to church.
  2. 2. I like to raise my voice in singing
    When I go to church.
    I fold my arms and bow my head,
    Then listen while the prayer is said;
    I do not talk but think instead
    When I go to church.
  3. 3. I learn about my Heav'nly Father
    When I go to church.
    I thank him for each flow'r and tree,
    For home and friends and family,
    For all the lovely things I see
    When I go to church.
  4. Words and music: Faye Glover Petersen, 1914-2009.
