Supper Time

Jimmie Davis

  Many years a  go in days of  childhood
 used to play till evening shadows  come
Then winding down an  old familiar  pathway
 heard my mother call at set of  sun.

Come  home, come  home, it's supper  time
the  shadows lengthen  fast
Come  home, come  home, it's supper  time
we're  going home at  last.

Some of the fondest memories of my childhood
were woven around supper time
when my mother used to call
from the back steps of the old home place
Come on home now son it's supper time.
Ah gee but I'd love to hear that once more.
But you know for me time has woven the realization
of a truth that is even more thrilling.
And that's when the call comes
from the portals of glory to come home for it's supper time.
When all of God's children shall gather round the table
with the Lord Himself At the greatest supper time of them all.

You need someone to hum or (sing softly) the chorus
While doing the recitation.
Melody played on guitar will do.
The recitation is rather long for the chorus
You might get the singer(s) or musician to tag the chorus
(repeat last line of chorus, then you won't have to hurry
the recitation)

Repeat chorus after recitation.
