Songs: Show Me

(J. McNamara, G. Holland)

When we are young
We don’t think what to do
Time on our hands
We live a life without rule
Seeking attention
Our own interests above all else
Society about us
Teaching us that we cannot fail

Institutions shape us into citizens
Make us into responsible men and women
So that we can pass this to our children

Show me with your life, what you’re living for
Show me with your life, what you’re living for
Show me with your life, what you’re living for

With mouths we say
All is God’s and all is well
But in our churches
Protecting our own lives in a shell
No one’s fool are we
We’re so blind that we cannot tell

We get angry when we cannot have our way
Taking time for all the silly plans we make
What on earth are you doing for heaven’s sake?

Show me with your life, what you’re living for
Show me with your life, what you’re living for
Show me with your life, what you’re living for

Be careful now
With things God’s given to use
Jesus is calling
In your heart you must choose
There is a battle
For your soul you cannot lose

We get angry when we cannot have our way
Taking time for all the silly plans we make
What on earth are you doing for heaven’s sake?

Show me with your life, what you’re living for
Show me with your life, what you’re living for
Show me with your life, what you’re living for
