Back to Basics

Nov 29, 2001
By: Rick L King

It's not the stained glass windows
It's not the padded pews
It's not the fancy carpets
Nor the latest gossip news

But it's just the people that gather
To praise and please the Lord
And sing and dance in the Spirit
With all of their hearts, in one accord
And give glory to the Lord
Just for who He is
The King of Kings and Lord of Glory
That is when God is pleased, with his kids

It's not the pastors or the deacons
It's not the ushers in the isles
It's not the counselors or teachers
Nor the ladies in their latest styles
It's not the many works
Which men do in his name
It's not the many programs
Where men, get the fame
It's not the rituals and traditions
Which have been handed down from men
Because the Lord knows the heart
And to him, they are but sin

It's only when the people
Come in the pureness of their heart
And bow before God's throne
That the Lord can do his part
And set the captive free
And heal the sick and lame
For this is when God gets the glory
Because we are lifting Jesus’ name

Jesus loves all of the people
Not just a select few
With a love that's pure and holy
And so beautiful and so true
We must not forget
When caught up in all that we do
That the love of Jesus must manifest
Through me and through you

We must get back to basics
With love and forgiveness true
And allow the Holy Spirit
To flow through me and you.
