    OK guys 'n' gals, thought I'd try my hand at coming up with some lyrics to a new hymn. No tune for it, as lyrics are my strong suit.

    Anyway, I'd appreciate any critiques, constructive criticism, etc. First draft follows:

    ------------------------------------

    Songs About Jesus

    Verse 1:

    When I was just a baby, my mother would sing to me,
    Songs that told the story, of Jesus from Galilee.
    How he set the example, of how we are to live,
    And that he died to set me free, and how God would forgive.

    Chorus:

    Sing me songs about Jesus, Lyrics that I love to hear.
    Melodies about God's love, They're music to my ear.
    Wonderful songs about Jesus, How he died for me.
    How death and sin were defeated, when he rose victoriously.

    Verse 2:

    When I grew up and was tempted, to stray from God's true way,
    I'd recall mother singing, and how for me she'd pray.
    In my mind I remember, how her voice she'd raise,
    Singing songs about her Lord, giving him the praise.

    REPEAT CHORUS

    Verse 3:

    Now that I have grown older, the songs are with me still.
    I still remember the music, and hope I always will.
    Songs that remind me how Jesus, is my dearest friend,
    And how he keeps me close to him, he's with me till the end.

    REPEAT CHORUS

    Verse 4:

    When I am in my last hour, life on earth is done.
    I'll be trusting his power, the love of God's own son.
    Once again I'll hear mother, singing songs to me,
    Accompanied by the heavenly choir, I'll be home and free.

    REPEAT CHORUS

    And while I am in a song writing mood, how about one for the kids to sing at VBS?

    ==========================

    Do You Think?

    Do you think Jesus watches while we play?
    Do you think Jesus watches while we play?
    Yes, he watches while we play,
    And he keeps us safe each day.
    Do you know Jesus watches while we play?

    Do you think Jesus knows what's in our hearts?
    Do you think Jesus knows what's in our hearts?
    Yes, he knows what's in our hearts,
    Even in the deepest parts.
    Do you know Jesus knows what's in our hearts?

    Do you think Jesus loves us when we sin?
    Do you think Jesus loves us when we sin?
    Yes, he loves us when we sin,
    And he lets us try again.
    Do you know Jesus loves us when we sin?

    Do you think Jesus died for you and me?
    Do you think Jesus died for you and me?
    Yes, he died for you and me,
    Rose again to set us free.
    Do you know Jesus died for you and me?
