The Browns — Great Speckled Bird lyrics

(by Roy Acuff)

What a beautiful thought I am thinking concerning a great speckled bird
Remember her name is recorded on the pages of Gods' Holy Word

With all the other birds flocking round her, she is so despised by the squad
The Great Speckled Bird is the Bible representing the Great Church of God
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/the-browns-great-speckled-bird-lyrics.html ]
Desiring to lower her standards they watch every move that she makes
They long to find fault with her teaching but really they find no mistakes
I am glad I have learned of her meekness I am proud that my name is on her book
For I want to be one never fearing the face of my Saviour's true love
When he cometh descending from heaven on the clouds as he writes in his words
I'll be joyfully carried to meet him on the wings of that great speckled bird
