Why You Must Go Back To Bethel 

Back To Bethel
Pastor M. A. Oke (National/International Evangelist)

Genesis 35:15

“And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel.”

Back to the Bible, the true Living Word,

Sweetest old story that ever was heard,

Back to the joy-life my soul longs to

know,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Chorus

Back to Bethel I must go,

Back where the rivers of sweet water

flow,

Back to the true life my soul longs to

know,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Back to the beautiful path I once trod,

Back to the church and the people of

God,

Out of the cold world of sin and its woe,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Chorus

Back to Bethel I must go,

Back where the rivers of sweet water

flow,

Back to the true life my soul longs to

know,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Back to the giving of money and time,

Back to the life of contentment sublime,

Back to the protection the world cannot

know,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Chorus

Back to Bethel I must go,

Back where the rivers of sweet water

flow,

Back to the true life my soul longs to

know,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Back to the prayer life in Christ I once

knew,

Back to the beautiful life cleansing dew,

Back to help others to conquer each foe,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.

Chorus

Back to Bethel I must go,

Back where the rivers of sweet water

flow,

Back to the true life my soul longs to

know,

Bethel is calling, and I must go.
