If heaven is as nice as Midhurst, I’d certainly like to be there.

Midhurst

Of all the beautiful places
That ever were made of sand,
There’s a little place called Midhurst
The prettiest in the land.

There’s not place half so picturesque,
I love its hills and vales.
The beautiful groves of pine trees
That shelter it from the gales.

Say the residents of Midhurst
In their nightly prayers,
If heaven is as nice as Midhurst,
I’d certainly like to be there.

Art Finlay
