Our Song

This song was written for our church's 250th celebration in 1991.


SO HERE WE ARE (Music & Lyrics by Mark S. Corliss)


So here we are
Gods love to share
With friends around us everywhere
Nothing can compare
Nothing can compare

(Chorus sang after each verse by congregation) 

(Side 1) Hey there! ^^ Neighbor! ^^ What ya doin over there
(Side 2) Come to join the celebration, songs of joy are in the air
(Side 1) Jumping up and down, I saw you! Couldnt quite make it out 
(Side 2) We had to praise the Lord today, come see what its all about
(everyone) Come see what its all about

In love, the ones before us, built this church upon the land
They struggled with faith we would carry on, and bear it hand in hand
Weve seen some cold, cold winters, and we huddled in the pews
Through Indian raids and World Wars, we prayed for better news
How we prayed for better news

This church has grown in structure, but our fellowship is where it starts
Leaders preaching Gospel, and those talents who have touched our hearts
This rooms been filled with sadness, Childrens laughter, songs, and strife
For when we come together, this building rocks with life
Yeah, this building rocks with life

And now what lies before us, Its only God who understands
And He who will love and guide us, in our hopes and dreams and plans
History shows the friendships, that have flourished in the past
Today well make some new ones, and forever they will last and last
Yes, forever they will last and last

(After last chorus)

So here we are
Gods love to share
With friends around us everywhere
Nothing can compare
Nothing can compare
