When God Speaks….


When God speaks do you listen, do you hear His words of love,

In the tangled life that you`ve woven, do you listen from above?

Do you hear Him when He calls you, do you hear His desperate plea,

Place aside your earthly pride, rise up and follow Me.


When God speaks do you listen, to the ticking of the clock.

Did you know He`s watching… waiting for you to join His flock.

Did you know His love is boundless, every living soul on earth

Is cared and spared by Him, from the moment of our birth.


When God speaks do you listen, or is there just no time,

Too much to say and do today,  too many hills to climb.

Can you not spare one second from your daily list of chores,

For Him that died upon the cross to save my soul and yours?


When God speaks do you answer, do you say “Yes Lord,  I am here,

I am your faithful servant, each day, each month, each year,

Stay with me Lord, forgive me, for all the wrong I`ve done,

And lead me Heavenly father.. in the footsteps of your Son.”


When God speaks do you listen, do you shout His word aloud?

Do you call from every hill-top, do you tell the madding crowd?

Do you spread His word about you, to your neighbors and your friends,

Lord Jesus is your Savior and His mercy never ends.


When God speaks its pure magic, like the twinkling of a star,

Like the opening of a rose bud,  or a whale-call from afar.

There`s never any moment when His presence is not near,

Open up your heart to Him, then listen and you`ll hear.
