Prompt: Proverbs 28:6

“A poor person who walks in his integrity is better than one who is perverse in his ways even though he is rich.”

Rich Man, Poor Man

I'm a poor rich man

Not in material things
But rich in what will make
A heart start to sing

Joy and peace and love
Especially the love which comes
From God above

Others don't quite understand
Why I don't want
What they all have
But that's not what life is
I do believe
There's more to life
Than the things we can touch
Or the things we can see

Rich man or poor man
It is all in your view
I may be poor to others
But I'm a rich man too

Others don't quite understand
Why I don't want
What they all have
But that's not what life is
I do believe
There's more to life
Than the things we can touch
Or the things we can see

Can you take it with you
I do not think so
What you have inside is all
That will make it through

Rich man or poor man
It is all in your view
I may be poor to others
But I'm a rich man too

Prompt: James 1:22

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

Words

I’ve told you before
Words are words
They’re easy to say
But unless you believe
Deep in your heart
The words are empty

People are always talking
Making promises
They never try to keep
Words without any actions
Are just that, words

People are always saying
They truly believe
But deep down inside
Their heart does not show
The truth of their words

I’ve told you before
Words are words
They’re easy to say
But unless you believe
Deep in your heart
The words are empty

People are always declaring
Their devoted love
But the love they speak of
Is not warm
And is not truly true

I’ve told you before
Words are words
They’re easy to say
But unless you believe
Deep in your heart
The words are empty

Your Words Are Powerful

Prompt: Luke 8:15

“But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.”

Sow The Seeds

God tells us just sow the seeds
Sow the seeds, sow the seeds
God tells us to sow the seeds
Sow the seeds, sow the seeds
He'll do the rest

Cause God is the gardener
He tends His crops so well
He gives them their water
He shines down the Son
Then lovingly watches over them
Til the harvest is done

God tells us just sow the seeds
Sow the seeds, sow the seeds
God tells us to sow the seeds
Sow the seeds, sow the seeds
He'll do the rest

Cause God is the gardener
He tends His crops so well
He gives them their water
He shines down the Son
Then lovingly watches over them
Til the harvest is done

All we are called to do for Him
Is to plant in each heart a seed
God will take care of the rest
He knows what each person’s needs

Cause God is the gardener
He tends His crops so well
He gives them their water
He shines down the Son
Then lovingly watches over them
Til the harvest is done

God tells us just sow the seeds
Sow the seeds, sow the seeds
God tells us to sow the seeds
Sow the seeds, sow the seeds
He'll do the rest

Prompt: 2 Corinthians 5:13

“If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit.”

Crazy

Crazy, crazy, crazy
Crazy for the Lord

Some people think I’m crazy
Cause of what I still believe
But livin without the Lord
Is a little crazy to me

Crazy, crazy, crazy
Crazy for the Lord

Some say that I’m old fashioned
A bit behind the times
I need to change the error of my ways
Now that would be a crime

Crazy, crazy, crazy
Crazy for the Lord

Some people say it’s just a phase
That I am going through
But Lord deep down in my heart
I know you live is so true

Crazy, crazy, crazy
Crazy for the Lord

Crazy, crazy, crazy
Crazy for the Lord

Crazy, crazy, crazy
Crazy for the Lord

Prompt: James 1:22

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

Talk the Talk

I can talk the talk
Like the rest
But will my heart
Pass the test
Can I truly say
Deep down inside
I holy walk on

On the Lord’s side
On the Lord’s side
On the Lord’s side

A heart built for service
A love deep down inside

I know my life
Is not what it
Should be
It holds me back
From what I could be

I need to control
My thoughts
Before they strangle me
So deep down inside
I can always be

On the Lord’s side
On the Lord’s side

A heart built for service
A love deep down inside

There was really no prompt for this one. I tried to write with a blues and old time Gospel feel.

Sweet, Sweet Jesus

Sweet, sweet Jesus
Sweet, sweet Jesus

I talk about Jesus, but nobody cares
I’m tellin the gospel when nobody dares
I’m callin on his name i want to make it clear
Can you say where you’ll be when you’re not here
Some sweet Jesus with us some time spent
Till his time was up back to heaven he went
Well i got the good news that’ll light your fire
You can be with him someday if you desire

Sweet, sweet Jesus
Sweet, sweet Jesus

Jesus pulled into town He came from afar
Jewish leaders said He took it a little to far
Jesus told them things but they said He lied
So they had him hung on a cross til He died
Yes they did
Then on the third day as it came to pass
Jesus rose again his death did not last
I talk about something you sure understand
This was all done according to God’s plan
So now if you believe and call on his name
Jesus will take away you sins take your blame

Sweet, sweet Jesus
