Martha Memorial Has A Steeple

A special little white church sits on a hill
I've often sat on the steps, it was peaceful and still
By the porch was a bell, donated by some people
All the church needed was a beautiful steeple

Many times I mowed the cemetery grass
I saw people in cars, trucks, and tractors pass
By this sacred church built by man's hands
Firmly planted on the solid rock it stands

This little church is a humble place
Filled with God's love and His grace
The cemetery nearby is slowly filling up
With many of those saints, I did sup

On top of the roof, the steeple stands tall
The Lord was pleased as on His name they did call
Prayers were answered in a special way
When the steeple was placed on the church that day.
