I may not see as the eye will do
I may be unable to hear as the ear does so well
I can’t touch and feel like you the hand
But I can speak because I am a mouth.
O brain, you do so great a job
Thinking and planning and scheduling it right
I thank you for playing your part so well
But I am the mouth and I can speak.
Did you see that foot that just hurried by
Leaping and skipping to save a soul
When he gets to destination he’ll turn and say
You are the mouth, you should speak.
So the Lord had ordained it so
That none should think they’re self-sufficient
But as a body full and complete
We will work until He takes us home.
It was a dark day from the start
I walked down the winding street
Little knew I where I was headed
All I know, I needed a change.
It was a long and painful journey
Weary and worn and weak I was
Thirsting and hungering from my long long search
For peace and joy and who knows what.
It was a great encounter
A man I once heard could help my lot
Though I thought him cruel and crooked
Like many a man I’ve met in my life.
They say He is a lowly Carpenter
But I find Him too gentle of touch to be
They say He came from little Nazareth
But I think Him too great there to belong
For all I know, He wiped my tears away
And washed me clean of all my slime
He made me think I ought to live
To make His mercies known to all
