Give Me That Old Time Religion (Hymn)

Give Me That Old Time Religion
(1873)

(Refrain)
Give me that old time religion
’Tis the old time religion,
’Tis the old time religion,
And it’s good enough for me.

It was good for our mothers.
It was good for our mothers.
It was good for our mothers.
And it’s good enough for me.

Refrain

Makes me love everybody.
Makes me love everybody.
Makes me love everybody.
And it’s good enough for me.

Refrain

It has saved our fathers.
It has saved our fathers.
It has saved our fathers.
And it’s good enough for me.

Refrain

It will do when I am dying.
It will do when I am dying.
It will do when I am dying.
And it’s good enough for me.

Refrain

It will take us all to heaven.
It will take us all to heaven.
It will take us all to heaven.
And it’s good enough for me.

Refrain

This is another one of those old hymns that gets stuck in your head when you think about it.  Fortunately, the “old time religion” is good enough for me.  I have heard other verses, like “It was good for Paul and Silas…” and all of them are good.  Now I will be humming this all day!

    Fortunately the old time religion is good for modern times too 😉
