There’s two kinds of faith
To live what I already know to be true is not for me
I want to ramble on a little more and see
To receive new light from God is not what I had in mind
When I signed up to be a Christian it was only on Sunday this light I would find
I thought that God did what He wanted to do
What’s this stuff about “According to your faith be it unto you?”
To wait on the Lord is not my cup of tea
I will get what I can right now, for me
No way I’m going to teach a class of kids or men
I don’t even like them
Go here, go there, what kind of talk is this?
I already give up my Sunday morning and that’s it.
To live what I already know to be true is right for me
I want to practice what I know to be true for God to see
To receive new light from God is everything I had in mind
When I signed up to be a Christian I knew it would be all the time
I know that God does what is right to do
I praise Him for “According to your faith be it unto you?”
To wait on the Lord is like getting a joyful life degree
And I don’t want another thing that God has not prepared for me
I’ll teach that class of kids or men
All I’ve got to do is tell them about my very best friend
Go here, go there, where is it Lord that you would have me go?
I already gave up my life, so make it so.
