The dishes finally washed and the last plate put away;
Many choruses are sung as we cleaned the kitchen that day.
One after another, chorus followed chorus,
We were just warming up for singing on the porch.
As we walked through the kitchen into the living room,
I stopped at my piano to pick up Great Hymns of the Faith.
We sat on the swing together; singing all the while;
Wonderful hymns of Jesus redemption and His worthiness.
Crown Him with Many Crowns, O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing,
One Day He’s Coming, oh, glorious day; to Stand Up for Jesus,
Face to Face and Saved by Grace; and every song between.
I miss those days with Mama; when we sat on the porch to sing!
