11. Steeple on the Prairie

 Play Clip

The prairie spreads before me, a vast and open sea,
The gently waving grasses between the stands of trees.
The vastness of the heavens, the flatness of the ground;
The steeple on the church can be seen for miles around.

Chorus
The steeple of the prairie church above the fertile sod
Soars high above the trees and fields to point the way to God.
The people from surrounding farms come here to sing and pray.
The steeple helps remind them to follow God each day.

The prairie church is central to the community.
In true midwestern fashion, thereís hospitality.
The ladies fix a luncheon down in the dining hall.
Thereís produce from the garden and pheasant in the fall.

Repeat Chorus

The children read the Bible each week in Sunday School.
They learn the Ten Commandments, also the Golden Rule.
In church, a child is baptized a short time after birth,
And all mourn at the funírals when each has left this earth.

Repeat Chorus
