Excuses

A couple of weeks ago I got an iPod integration put in my car - and it is awesome. And because I now can listen to whatever is on my iPhone without headphones while I am in the car, I have listened more to the music I have on it. My brother gave me all the Acappella worship songs he had awhile back, so I have been enjoying them all over the last two weeks. There is one song that I think is really awesome and says it in simple English. :)



Excuses by In His Image

Excuses, Excuses, you hear them every day.
Now the devil, he'll supply them,
If from church you stay away.
When people come to worship God,
The devil always loses.
So to keep those folks away from church,
He offers them excuses!

In the summer it's too hot.
In the winter it's too cold.
In the spring time when the weather's just right,
We'll find some place else to go.
Well, it's up to the mountains,
Or down to the beach,
To visit some old friends,
Just stay home and kind of relax
And wait for the kinfolk to start dropping in.

Well those church benches their too hard,
That song leader's way too loud,
Well you know nervous you get,
When your sitting in a great big crowd.
The doctor told you, you'd better watch those crowds,
They'll set you back.
But you go to that 'ol ball game,
Because you say it helps you to relax.

A headache Sunday morning,
A backache Sunday night,
But by work time Monday morning,
Your feeling quite alright.
Well one of the children has a cold,
Pneumonia do you suppose?
Why the whole family had to stay home,
Just to blow that poor kids nose!

Excuses, Excuses, you hear them every day.
Now the devil, he'll supply them,
If from church you stay away.
When people come to worship God,
The devil always loses.
So to keep those folks away from church,
He offers them excuses!

Well the preacher his too young,
Or maybe his to old.
His sermons their not hard enough,
Or maybe their too bold.
His voice is much to quiet,
Sometimes he gets too loud!
He needs to have more dignity,
Or else he's way too proud!

His sermons their too long,
Or maybe their too short!
He needs to preach the word with dignity
Instead of stomp and snort!
Why that preacher we got must be,
The world's most stuck up man!
Why one of the ladies told me the other day,
"Why he didn't even shake my hand!"

Excuses, Excuses, you hear them every day.
Now the devil, he'll supply them,
If from church you stay away.
When people come to worship God,
The devil always loses.
So to keep those folks away from church,
He offers them excuses!
