Christmas is coming. The goose is getting fat. Please put a penny in the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny, then a ha' penny will do. If you haven't got a ha' penny, then God bless you!

'ROUND ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN
Lou Gottlieb

'Round about the mountain. 'Round about the mountain. My God is waitin'. You can rise in His arms. (Repeat)

Chorus:
The Lord loves a sinner. The Lord loves a sinner man. The Lord loves a sinner who will rise in His arms.

I would not be a sinner. I'll tell you the reason why. If the Lord should want me, I would not be ready to die!
I tell you fellow members, things happen mighty strange. The Lord was good to Israel and His ways don't ever change.

(Chorus)

Sometimes I feel discouraged and think my works in vain, but then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again.
If you can't pray like Peter, if you can't preach like Paul, go home and tell your neighbor that He died to save us all.

(Chorus)

'Round about the mountain. 'Round about the mountain. My God is waitin'. You can rise in His arms.
The Lord loves a sinner. The Lord loves a sinner man. The Lord loves a sinner who will rise in His arms
