The Ultimate Word

"The ultimate Word is not a paragraph but a person. If Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, then the heart of proclamation is personal and relational, not propositional."

The songs of woe that tug at the strings of our hearts...

Thanks to my friend who told me about this song. It's certainly worth sharing with all of you.

If you enjoyed "Jesus is my Friend", then this should be right up your alley.

Enjoy!



Come on everybody -- sing along!

Artist: Carll Hayes
Song: She Left Me For Jesus
Album: Trouble in Mind

We've been datin' since High School, we never once left this town
We used to go out on the weekends and we'd drink til we drowned
But now she's acting funny and I don't understand
I think that she's found her some other man

CHORUS

She left me for Jesus and that just ain't fair
She says that he's perfect, how could I compare
She says I should find him and I'll know peace at last
If I ever find Jesus I'm kickin' his ass

She showed me a picture all I could do was stare
At that freak in his sandals with his long pretty hair
They must think I'm stupid or I don't have a clue
I'll bet he's a commie or even worse yet a jew

REPEAT CHORUS

She's given up whiskey and ah takin' up wine
While she prays for his troubles she's forgot about mine
I'm a gonna get even I can't handle the shame
Why last time we made love she even called out his name

REPEAT CHORUS

It coulda been Carlos or even Billy Ortez
But if I ever find Jesus
He's gonna wish he was dead. Amen.
