There's a little white church just south of the tracks

Where I used to go with my Jim

Each Sunday night we'd sit in the back

And listen to the Sweet Jesus Hymn

I'd close my eyes he'd hold my hand

And we'd dream of our home in the sky

When Sweet Jesus would come and take us with Him

To meet with our Father on high

Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet LORD

Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet LORD

At this little white church just a few weeks ago

An angel came down for my Jim

That Sunday night my Jim left me alone

To the sound of the Sweet Jesus Hymn

I closed my eyes held onto his hand -

As he went to our home in the sky

Sweet Jesus I asked, Please take me with him

To meet with our Father on high.

Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet LORD

Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet LORD

To that little white church just south of the tracks

I now go alone without Jim

Each Sunday night I sit in the back

And listen to the Sweet Jesus Hymn

I close my eyes - reach out for his hand

And I think of him home in the sky

Sweet Jesus I pray - Look after my Jim

As he sits with our Father on high

Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet LORD

Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet LORD

Jesus - Sweet Jesus - Sweet Jesus Lord
