Need for the Gospel
By David Smith April 24, 2011
Inspired at Ministry Meeting
Gold frankincense and myrrh they offered to the king
The wise men from the East came to worship him
The richness of his glory; the sweet savour here on earth
And the eternal glory, Christmas, we call his birth.
Wood hay and stubble; our materialism we bring
Our selfishness as rags we offer to our king
We have to be on fire and through the furnace a glow
To be the living stones for the Saviour that we know;
Through the fiery furnace where temper is complete
So we can worship Him in purity so sweet
Clothed in His righteousness as we worship God and King
On fire for the Lord to let our voices sing.
Wood hay and stubble contrasts riches in heavens glory
O the finished work of the Cross, it is the Gospel Story.
And that was the drift from the message in the morn
And to follow Christ the need to be re born.
