1. I love to sit and listen to the old-time singing
Of those sweet redemption songs
They tell me of a Heaven and a love that God has given
I get happy and I sing along
They sing the Gospel story
‘Bout my mansion up in glory
And the music gets my soul refreshed
If you haven’t ever listened to an old-time singing
Then your blesser ain’t never been blessed

(Chorus)
Oh, your blesser ain’t never been blessed
‘Till they sing about amazing grace
And your cup ain’t never run over ’till they sing about
Meeting Jesus face to face
Your bell ain’t never been rung
Till that old-time religion gets sung
If you haven’t heard “The Haven of Rest”
Then your blesser ain’t never been blessed

2. When the saints begin to gather just to sing about the Savior
It’s a blessed time for me
You really know you’re livin’, it’s the closest thing to heaven
Hear that old-time harmony
When the singers get inspired and the tenor sings up higher
And the bass goes lower than the rest
If you haven’t ever listened to an old-time singing
Then your blesser ain’t never been blessed

Repeat Chorus twice
