TITLE: Are you a good Caretaker

Have you ever watched a good Caretaker?
Sweeping it clean
Mowing it down,
Green is the lawn of the best caretaker in town!
Let everyone know what weíre worth
Let Gods children patrol this earth.

I write for God
His hospitality is all I need
A garden of love without weeds
I will sew his wonderful seeds
Faith, love, hope, charity
A path of life from earth to heaven
Spread with holy bread forever
The Holy Spirit critiques as we go
He tells me which plant to hoe

Are you sitting on Gods Word?
Planted inside four walls with stained glass windowpanes
whose light switch is pulled only on the seventh day!
Thatís not the real way~~~~~~~~~~
When you exit the building, do you still feel the rain?
Does your hospitality stay hidden in folds of paper?
Does it explode into bubbling over
inside your secret compartment of everyday life?
Giving to the poor
Praying for the sick
Begging all sinners to repent
Visiting nursing homes and hospital rooms
Is this not where weíre sent?

Do you let the hallelujahs roll
While shopping Wal-mart grocery store
Do you go visiting door to door
Spreading Godís word is what weíre for
Donít be quiet, the world is not quiet
LET'S PRAISE THE ROCK OF AGES
while we're turning lifeís pages
Let us proclaim his mercy and sing about his grace
Donít let the rocks cry out in our place

Preach against sin,
Teach Jesus love until the end
Let them hear us quote John: 3:16
Sharing Jesus love around every bend,
Even with the lowest of lows
Winning souls is our goal
Go to the tavern seekers and the partakers of the night
Let Gods love show what is right
Even unto a generation of vipers
Unto a den of thieves
Let Our God be pleased!
Can you admit to winning souls
after sharing the greatest story ever told

Donít seat God on a wooden bench
Warming the spot wherein you've planted yourself
Do not let God get out of reach
Teach and teach and teach
Work for the night is coming
The doors are slowly closing
Let grace run to and fro, from the four corners of the earth
RING THE BELL, RING THE BELL
Jump on board the ship of Zion
Let your soul dwell
There in the secret place of The Most High

Iím a caretaker of Gods hospitality, JESUS
How about you?
Come join me too!
Jump on board
Let Zion oar us on through
Why wait?
Letís get off inside Heavens Gate
