A Love Song

I sat down in a chair today
And sang the words to a song you played
Your voice joined mine in harmony
It was the happiest I had ever been
In a while

Sitting in a chair your eyes on me
Singing your love in the melody
The quiet of the room that held only two
Was as sweet as could be

I got offered to sing on my very own stage
The spotlight bright, complete with fame
I felt adored but missed the feeling
Of being known

Sitting in a chair your eyes on me
Singing your love in the melody
The quiet of the room that held only two
Is a distant memory

I've travelled the world, tasted and seen
All if offered, just for me
My mouth was bitter, my heart empty
I want to go home

Sitting in a chair your eyes on me
Singing your love in the melody
The quiet of the room that held only two
Was it still waiting for me?

I sat down in a chair today
And sang the words to a song you played
Your voice joined mine in harmony
I rocked our baby girl
To sleep

Sitting in a chair your eyes on me
Singing your love in the melody
The quiet of the room that now held three
Sitting in a chair is life for me

Who Needs Whom?


Who will minister to the minister
If He is not Lord?
Who will serve the servant
If He is not Master?
Who will love the unlovable
If He is not Friend?
Who will guide the guide
If He is not The End?

Who will parent the parent
If He is not Father?
Who will teach the teacher
If He is not Counsellor?
Who will judge the judge
If He's not on the throne?
Who will bring life from death
If His grave did grow cold?

Who will right all the wrongs
If He could not redeem?
Who wears the crown and the honour
If He is not King?

Who will praise Him if we don't?
All creation complies
Even rocks have their voices
If ours we deny

Who will glorify His name
If we turn away?
The angels in heaven
All sing of His fame

Who will finish the race
If we choose not to run?
The ones gone before us
Have already won

He doesn't need us but still
He calls us by name
To take part in His kingdom
Over all that He reigns

No matter our choice
He's still Lord and still King
It's us who will lose
If we choose not to sing
