New Song lyrics by yours truly

So this is the lyrics for this song I’ve been writing about my job working with kids after school. If you have any suggestions, they’re not final yet. So suggest away. I started recording today, it’s coming along nicely.

They don’t know who You are

Or that they need You in their lives

They don’t think about next year

Why would they have eternity in mind?

How can I speak to them?

They’re only here to play around

Surrounded by a broken world

Oblivious to lives that are crashing down

Somewhere else

But their innocence is already fading

How do I protect them yet present them with the truth?

That they need You

I will love them as You love me

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do to

Give them everything they really need

You gave to me

Mercy, by grace through faith, you’ve set me free

Permanently

Your love for them is deep

And You’ve put me here to tell them what that means

You say that everyone

Who calls on You is given life

And even though they’ve a way to go

Before they die, that fact cannot be minimized

How can I speak to them?

They already think that life’s about themselves

Surrounded by a culture that’s

Oblivious to lives that are crashing down

Somewhere else

Their innocence is already fading

How do I protect them, yet present them with the truth?

That they need You

I will love them as You love me

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do to

Give them everything they really need

You gave to me

Mercy, by grace through faith, you’ve set me free

Permanently

Your love for them is deep

And You’ve put me here to tell them what that means

  1. Yes there is a recording! If you go to http://soundcloud.com/tommo39 and listen to Song For Kids, that’s the one :)

    Incidentally, when I played this song at my church, it got me a job running the Sunday School. Best job interview I’ve even had without knowing it :P
