~The Old Time Religion


       Shortly after the Civil War in America, a Methodist minister and his wife were blessed with the birth of a son.

       When the boy became a teenager, he left home to make his way in the world. His fondest dream was to become a concert singer, but he never fulfilled his ambition. He took a job peddling songbooks, and later made his living by going around the countryside in a wagon demonstrating pianos for a local firm.

       At the age of 25 he began to realize that his worldly goals would not be achieved and that even their complete attainment could never satisfy his deepest longings. Convicted by the Holy Spirit of having drifted far from his early training, Charlie Tillman received Christ as his Savior and spent the rest of his life singing and working for the Lord.

       One day while passing through South Carolina, he heard a group of Colored worshippers chanting a lilting tune. He quickly jotted down the simple words and melody, for they spoke to him of his own conversion experience. Few today remember Charlie Tillman, but almost everyone has heard of ďThe Old Time Religion.Ē

óHenry G. Bosch

The Old-Time Religion[1]

1           It was good for our mothers,

It was good for our mothers,

It was good for our mothers,

And itís good enough for me.

Chorus  íTis the old-time religion,

íTis the old-time religion,

íTis the old-time religion,

And itís good enough for me.

2           It has saved our fathers,

It has saved our fathers,

It has saved our fathers,

And itís good enough for me.

3           Makes me love evírybody,

Makes me love evírybody,

Makes me love evírybody,

And itís good enough for me.

4           It will do when I am dying,

It will do when I am dying,

It will do when I am dying,

And itís good enough for me.

5           It will take us all to heaven,

It will take us all to heaven,

It will take us all to heaven,

And itís good enough for me.
