The Country Faith

HERE in the country’s heart

Where the grass is green,

Life is the same sweet life

As it e’er hath been.

Trust in a God still lives,

And the bell at morn

Floats with a thought of God

O’er the rising corn.

God comes down in the rain,

And the crop grows tall—

This is the country faith,

And the best of all!
