lean not on your own understanding; in all

your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make

your paths straight. (NIV)

From The Heart Of An Old Farmer By: D. F. (Don) Cooper

This pamphlet is available at Don’s Presentations


Of An Old Farmer

Used for presentations

This book is a compilation of poems and song lyrics which really do come from the heart of a former dairy farmer who sincerely desires to share his love for Jesus and God’s true Word the Holy Bible with you.

Farm Country Gospel Music was formed with this purpose in mind.

The Bible is the reference book for everything I write and I hope that is evident to readers and listeners.

As a farmer, God’s presence was felt every day of my life, and seen in all His creation which surrounded me everywhere I looked. I am thankful that He allowed me to spend my life in such close communion with Him.

I am also thankful for my wife, children, grandchildren, friends, relatives and great grandchildren to come. My work is a result of the parts they have all played in my life.

My wife, Ruth, has been so much more than a wife; my partner, my inspiration and my sounding board for everything I write. She is my greatest blessing.
