AN ODE TO REV HOOK

AN ODE TO REV HOOK

There’s a church in the vale by the river
It’s surrounded by tall trees serene
It’s known as Cuningham Memorial
No lovelier church can be seen
It’s built by the side of the river
It’s known as the River Maine
When visitors come to admire it
They say they will come back again
We have the Rev Hook as our minister
He’s been with us o’er twenty-five years
To hear him preach from the pulpit
He will always banish our fears
He’s a very remarkable person
One who stands out in a crowd
His welcoming smile when he greets you
You sure come away feeling proud
He loves a round on the golf course
Be it Kilrea or Portballintrae
I just don’t know his handicap
But it makes him feel good for the day
Whenever he comes round to visit
He can really join in the fun
Nothing pleases him half as much
As a nice cup of tea and a bun
When trouble comes into a family
He is really a tower of strength
Always being there when needed
He will go to any length
I hope when it’s time for retirement
With his wife a new life to start
His ministry in Cuningham Memorial
Will still hold a place in our hearts
