(2nd verse by Barry Neufeld)

  Psalm 122:1
 "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD."

I love to go to the church where the healing waters flow,
Where I can be with the Christian friends I know,
That's where my soul and my spirit feel so free,
Somehow, it seems just like Heaven there to me.

Refrain
I love to go to the Church in the Little Green Valley,
That's where I found the Lord one day.
I love to go to the Church in the Little Green Valley,
That's where my sins were washed away.
That's where God's people sing the songs I love to hear,
That's where I feel the presence of my Lord so near.
I love to go to the Church in the Little Green Valley,
That's where my sins were washed away.

I love to sing all the songs, that I learned at Mother's knee,
Songs of salvation, how the Lord has set me free;
No higher praise sung by angel choirs above
Equals the songs about our Savior's Love

Refrain
I love to go to the Church in the Little Green Valley,
That's where I found the Lord one day.
I love to go to the Church in the Little Green Valley,
That's where my sins were washed away.
That's where God's people sing the songs I love to hear,
That's where I feel the presence of my Lord so near.
I love to go to the Church in the Little Green Valley,
That's where my sins were washed away.
