You’ve heard all the sayings, they’ve been ’round for years
Some folks make you laugh so hard, you can’t hold back the tears
Some are more sobering; you wonder if they’re true
But they’re for someone else and not for you
There’s the one about the guy who can’t see the forest for the trees
His corn flakes box is not quite full; who writes these?
Stop him please.
But there’s a few found in the Bible, not so easy to discard
I think it’s cause the words cut to the heart
They speak of danger and avoiding man-made lies
They mostly fall on deaf ears, not too many folks get wise
I guess they’re ever learning but never coming to the Truth
Folks in church today are livin’ proof
Jesus had a few like that, and He nailed it pretty good
After all, He’s God, – if He doesn’t know who would?
He talked about a people who would meddle with His plan
They’d never bend their will yet they claim to hold His hand
I can’t help but wonder what went through His mind
As He offered sight to a people who said
“no, we’re happy blind”
He watched them turn away and make a God
to suit their needs
It’ll get worse as time goes on, my Bible reads
They won’t see the danger; they’ll fall for man-made lies
It’s hard to understand why these people don’t get wise
If they’re ever learning then they should know what to do
You’d really think by now they’d have a clue
They’re livin’ proof that Jesus’ words were true
