May 17 – The Little Things

May 17, 2012

“And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.” – Matt. 10:42

The Little Things

Verse 1:

There’s no cup of water upon the preacher’s stand;

Leaves are on the porch and debris is all around;

No towels in the holders and books strewn where they lay:

‘Cause just last Friday morning, Brother Johnson passed away.

 Verse 2:

Brother Johnson was a quiet man always on his pew,

Faithful every Sunday, a man nobody really knew.

No one seemed to really realize his worth;

They didn’t know, for him, the smallest things came first.

Chorus:

Who will fill the needs Brother Johnson did in love;

Not for earthly gain, but for blessing up above;

Not for praise of men, but for the glory of his King;

Who will serve the Lord in just “the little things?”

Verse 3:

When friends were sad and hurting, he was on the phone;

When the churchyard was neglected, he mowed in on his own.

Water leaks and burned out lights, he was always there

Doing all “the little things” no one else would bear.

Chorus:

Who will fill the needs Brother Johnson did in love;

Not for earthly gain, but for blessing up above;

Not for praise of men, but for the glory of his King;

Who will serve the Lord in just “the little things?”

Bridge:

At the funeral service, there were not too many there;

And the preacher started, “Let’s say a little prayer.”

Later in the program, within the eulogy,

It was only mentioned, “He did little things.”

Repeat Prelude (slower and with feeling)

There’s no cup of water upon the preacher’s stand;

Leaves are on the porch and debris is all around;

No towels in the holders and books strewn where they lay:

‘Cause just last Friday morning, Brother Johnson passed away.
