“The Little Stone Church,” music by Alan W. Smith

Dad's music, 'The Little Stone Church'



My father Alan W. Smith (1917-1989) was a part time organist at the Swift Memorial United Methodist Church in Sagamore Beach, MA, about which church he wrote this hymn.

The church is adjacent to the Cape Cod Canal and was about ten minutes away from my father’s home on Cape Cod.
