The Dream Song of Busy People


God is not willing for any of us
to fall short of his gory
So He gave us dreams
Of the soon coming new day
He gave us vision for telling his story
And the good news, Jesus is the Way.

There are busy people, busy people
busy building, busy building,
busy people, busy building people.
It’s the apostle, and the prophet,
The evangelist, and the pastor
and teacher busy building people.

There are busy people
reaching for people to teach
There are busy people
teaching the people they reach
They build up the saints by sharing their heart
encouraging others in the things of God.

There are busy people
preaching the gospel of dreams
There are busy people
Giving of all their means
They live in the Spirit
From the inside out
This is how we serve one another
Cause that’s what it’s all about.

There are busy people, busy people
busy building, busy building,
busy people, busy building people.
It’s the apostle, and the prophet,
The evangelist, and the pastor
and teacher busy building people.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
