TNDARLN Lyr Req: Songs About Grandparents (39) Lyr Add: I LEARNED ABOUT JESUS IN GRANDMA'S... 10 Sep 01

I Learned About Jesus in Grandma's Rocking Chair
words and music by Joel Hemphill, copyright 1975

I went to live with Grandma when I was just a kid,
And if someone ever needed someone, I'm some one who did;
She loved Grandpa and Jesus with plenty love to share,
And she told me all about it in that big old rocking chair.

I learned about Jesus in Grandma's rocking chair,
And sometimes when I'm troubled I wish that I were there;
For when she sang of His sweet love, I didn't have a care,
I learned about Jesus in my Grandma's rocking chair.

I used to love to hear her hum as she worked through the day,
And each night at bedtime I loved to hear her pray;
She told me about heaven waiting 'way up there,
And I first felt the feeling in my Grandma's rocking chair.
