WHO IS THAT ONE OVER THERE
WITH A BACK PACK LONG SLEEVES AND MESSY HAIR
DRY EYES THAT CRY WITH OUT SHEDDING A TEAR
A HUNGRY MOUTH FROWNING ABOUT THE FEAR
WITH NO HOPE FOR NOW TRY AND NUMB THE SORROW
PROVERBS GIVES WINE TO THE POOR TO MAKE IT TO TOMORROW
WE SHOULD HELP WHO EVER IS IN NEED
'CEPT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD IT COULD BE ME
IF YOU CAN AND YOU DON'T GOD AIN'T IN YOUR HEART
IF YOU DO YOU'LL BE BLESSED SO BE SMART
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF IT WERE YOU
HUNGRY, COLD NO MONEY AND THE FLU
NO SAFE PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD
YOU'DE BE LUCKY IF YOU COULD FIND A BED
SOME THINGS WE HAVE TO HAVE
A MAILBOX, FOOD AND A HOT BATH
Clinton MS. 1995
Tell me Lord
Tell me Lord is it not true
that we have alot of work to do?
Are we not supposed to give to the poor
give to the needy when you have blessed us with more?
why then do church goers lock their arms tight
to keep what they have hidden from the light?
They don't care who has a need
as long as it doesn't touch their greed?
yet, they say they are saved and believe
but they think it is more blessed to receive
Why then does this not make since to me
they shut their eyes to the poor so they won't see?
If I am wrong Lord please let me know
But you said in our hearts let Jesus show
Jesus you said to help and to give
pray for the sick this is how to live
To love and forgive everyone
then your work is seen and done
How could they get off the beaten path
of the mercy and compassion the Lord Jesus hath
not stingy and greedy like the scribes and pharisee
a religous hypocrit to enter heaven he has no key
like the rich man who let the leppar at his gate lay and beg
when he saw he was wrong he was in hell he was already dead
or the camel in the needles eye that will never fit
nor will the rich and greedy soul in heaven ever sit
Humble and lowly my Jesus does walk
not prideful or with arrogant talk
One day, maybe soon, we will all like Jesus live
with a heart of compassion to the poor we will give.
"WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS THERE WILL ALSO YOUR HEART BE"
"SELL ALL YOU HAVE,GIVE IT TO THE POOR,AND COME,FOLLOW ME"
"JACOB VOWED TO GIVE 1/10 OF ALL GOD GAVE HIM"
"HE SAID IF GOD WOULD BE WITH HIM AND SAVE HIM"
"JESUS SAW THE RICH CASTING MUCH MONEY INTO THE TREASURY"
"THEN A POOR WIDOW CAME CASTING TWO MITES IN THE TREASURY"
"JESUS SAID THAT SHE HAD GIVEN MORE THAN ALL THAT THE OTHERS GAVE"
"THEY GAVE OUT OF THEIR ABUNDANCE AND SHE GAVE ALL SHE HAD TO SAVE"
"PROVE ME WITH YOUR TITHES AND OFFERINGS THE LORD DOES SAY"
BRING THEM INTO MY STOREHOUSE SO THAT THERE WILL BE FOOD THIS DAY"
"I WILL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT MANY BLESSING FOR YOU"
"BLESSINGS NOT ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE, I WILL REBUKE THE DEVOUR TOO"
"BLESSED YOU WILL BE IF YOU CONSIDER THE POOR"
"THEN TROUBLE AND SICKNESS WON'T KNOCK AT YOUR DOOR"
THE LORD WILL DELIVER YOU AND KEEP YOU ALIVE AND WELL
REMEMBER THE BEGGAR AND THE RICH MAN THAT WENT TO HELL
IT IS NOT EASY TO GIVE OUT OF NEED
BUT IS OUR FAITH PLANTED AS OUR SEED
FOR SURELY IF YOU HEAR AND OBEY GOD'S WORD
YOU WILL SEE THE MIRACLES IN THE BIBLE THAT YOU HEARD
BE CAREFUL HOW YOU TREAT A STRANGER THATS ON THE STREET
THE BIBLES SAID IT COULD BE AN ANGEL THAT YOU MEET
AND REMEMBER WHAT EVER YOU DO UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE
YOU WON'T LOOSE YOUR REWARD AND THE LORD YOU WILL PLEASE
HOW DO WE SHOW OUR LOVE TO THE LORD?...BY OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD, THE SWORD
JESUS SAID IF YOU LOVE ME YOU WILL KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS IN MY WORD
LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOUR SELF JUST LIKE YOU HAVE ALREADY HEARD
DEDICATED TO THE LORD~THE EYE IN THE SKY,BIRD ON ROOF,TO ALL THE NEEDY,THE RICH,THE SINNER AND THE SAINT... WILL YOU BE A GOOD SAMARITAN???
TO BE ABLE TO HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO LIVE
YOU SEE IF IT WERE THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE COIN
WORRY AND LACK TO YOUR WANT WOULD JOIN
NOT TO MENTION THE WAY IT MAKES YOU FEEL
HUMBLED WITH PAIN AND HURT THAT IS REAL
BUT YOU SEE IF IT WERE THE OTHER SHOE
YOU WOULD FEEL HAPPY TO HELP AND BE BLESSED TOO
GOD SAYS IF WE HAVE WHAT THE OTHER NEEDS
WE SHOULD GIVE IT TO THEM SOWN AS OUR SEEDS
BUT IF WE RESIST AND CLING ON TO THIS
GOD IS NOT IN OUR HEARTS, LOVE IS WHAT WE MISS (1JOHN3:17)
THE WORD ALSO SAYS IF SOMEONE IS IN LACK
OUR FAITH IS DEAD IF WE TURN OUR BACK (JAMES 2:16)
THIS IS MORE REASONS WHY WE SHOULD GIVE
TO RECEIVE IS REALLY THE HARDEST WAY TO LIVE
HAVING ENOUGH FOR OURSELVES AND THEN ENOUGH TO SHARE
IT IS EASIER AND BLESSED TO SHOW THAT YOU CARE
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE IN WANT AND NEED
NO MONEY IN YOUR POCKET T0 DO A GOOD DEED
TODAY ME, MAYBE TOMORROW YOU
