I Write These Things To You (Single)

$0.00

Product Description

 I was a gangly kid of thirteen

Dark feelings and  insecurity

I Went to dad and said him 

Do I need to get saved all over  again

No, son, it’s a once and done

Don’t mistrust God only begotten son

He opened the pages of first John

Talked of assurance, I was stunned

I write these things to you

who believe In the name of God’s son

So you may know that you 

have eternal life. You can Know it’s true. 

I was still feeling really insecure, 

So Dad said I should talk some more

With my bible study leader at our little bible church

So that Sunday I waited by the door

How do I know I’m really, truly saved

I said to him, hoping to be free

Security would be in me 

surely as easy as one two three

The fact that you're asking is a really good sign

He said as I waited for something more divine

But It never materialized, and he was done

That’s it, that’s all, nothing about God’s Son

I guess he’d never read the writings of John?

For him, the Eternal was a “maybe it’s done.”

How could he live with such uncertainty

I shoulda showed him what dad showed me

I write these things to you

who believe In the name of God’s son

So you may know that  you 

have eternal life. You can Know it’s true. 

Over the next thirty years or so 

I’d count more doubts than my fingers and toes

The church is drowning in salvation doubt

makes me want to shout this out out

Jesus and John said so clearly

The thing we continually fail to see

Read the words, and you’ll see what I mean

Right there in first John five one three

I write these things to you

who believe In the name of God’s son

So you may know that  you 

have eternal life. You can Know it’s true.
