Walnut Street Bridge


It’s a beautiful historical church
Reaches up forever it seems
Its awesome and stately look
Right out of nighttime dreams

It’s been around so many years
God has nestled in its folds
Generation after generation
His constant word is what it holds

To add this picturesque church
Is a bridge that’s historical too
So charming and so old
It almost seems untrue

It’s like God was in the planning
You can feel the fluffy clouds
Straight up into heaven it seems
Only saints would be allowed

In the heart of Oklahoma City
As though up on a heavenly ridge
The pure designs of the church
And the Walnut Street Bridge!
