ILLINOIS CITY & PINE BLUFF
UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
The little church beside the road,
Means very much to me;
for there my burdens I unload,
And spiritual truths I see.
Within its doors I find the rest,
the world can never give;
and there I learn to meet life's tests,
and better ways to live.
When burdens press upon my soul,
I find a precious peace;
and to my heart come joys untold,
then from my soul release.
Oh little church beside the road,
God bless your ministry;
And through the years may souls unload,
Their cares and may be free
