The Old Fashioned Meeting

Herbert Buffum

1.      Oh how well I remember in the old-fashioned days,
When some old fashioned people had some old-fashioned ways;
In the old-fashioned meetings, as they tarried there
In the old-fashioned manner, how God answered their prayer.

Twas an old-fashioned meeting in an old-fashioned place,
Where some old-fashioned people had some old-fashioned grace;
As an old-fashioned sinner I began to pray,
And God heard me and saved me in the old-fashioned way.

2.      There was singing, such singing of those old-fashioned airs!
There was power, such power in those old-fashioned prayers,
An old-fashioned conviction made the sinner pray,
And the Lord heard and saved him in the old-fashioned way.

3.      If the Lord never changes, as the fashions of men,
If He's always the same, why, He is old-fashioned then!
As an old-fashioned sinner saved thru old-time grace,
I'm sure He will take me to an old-fashioned place.
