Lyrics

Faith in Action

Written By: Graeme Greenhill

Verse 1

It's not good deeds that give eternal life,
It's not our actions that will save our souls,
But when we claim Christ as our Lord and Savior,
We get to demonstrate our faith is real and whole.
Our faith is real and whole.
Our faith is real and whole.

Verse 2

What good is it to tell a hungry man
"I wish you well and hope that you'll be fed."
Just as a hungry man needs food to live,
So it is written "Without action faith is dead."
Without action faith is dead.
Without action faith is dead.

Chorus

Faith in action.
Our faith reflects in all we give.
Faith in action.
Our time and talents employed in serving the world
will show that Christ still lives.

Verse 3

"I was hungry and you gave me food.
You gave me drink when I was thirsty," said the Lord.
For when we serve even the least of these,
We serve Him too, and faith fulfils His Holy Word.
Our faith fulfils the Word.
Our faith fulfils His Holy Word

(Repeat Chorus)

Rock and Roll Minister

Written By: Graeme Greenhill

Verse 1

He couldn't decide, the pros and cons were all tied,
it was a tough choice.
He loved rock and roll, but was that how he was called
to use his big voice?
His friends had all heard he planned to preach the Word,
but longed to travel the land in a rock and roll band.
They said you don't have to choose between the Light and the blues.
Just be a Rock and Roll Minister,
That's how you can spread the Good News.

Verse 2

That all seemed long ago now, as he was struggling with how
to lead a tough crowd.
He'd tried to set a new course, but they all said it was worse.
Dissent was too loud.
He knew they wanted to grow this church whose spirit was low.
How could he break off the chains that kept them all so restrained?
A wise old man of the sea said just you listen to me,
And be a Rock and Roll Minister,
This is how you'll set them all free:

Chorus

You gotta rock the boat to move it off the sand.
You gotta roll with the waves to get it back to land.
Use prayer to read the wind before you trim the sail.
And as a Rock and Roll Minister
With God's help you will never fail.

(Repeat Chorus)
