Do you remember when Tennessee Ernie Ford received so much radio play with this song. Larry has always loved this piece. Listen to the Jubilate Vocal Ensemble in concert – this song really works and audiences will love it!

LYRICS

There’s a church in the valley by the wildwood
no lovelier spot in the dale
No place is so dear to my childhood
as the little brown church in the vale

O come
O come to the church in the wildwood
O come to the church in the dale
No spot is so dear to my childhood
as the little brown church in the vale

How sweet on a clear Sunday morning
to listen to the clear ringing bell
Its tone so sweetly is calling
Oh, come to the church in the vale

There, by the church in the valley
lies one that I loved so well
She sleeps, sweetly sleeps neath the willow
One day I will rest by her side

From the church in the valley by the wildwood
when day fades away into night
I will part from this place of my childhood
wing my way to the mansions of light
