Is there a whisper of frustration
Within the church body?
Just a little desperation
Or is it only me?
Who feels we’ve lost it somewhere
We might be a little OTT?
If it’s not Hillsongs then it’s Vineyard
We practise these week-in, week-out
Is the Holy Spirit struggling
To be heard above the shout
And the clamour of our programmes
Or have we drowned Him out?
The world sees us happy-clappy
Outside are we really real?
Have we truly met with Jesus?
And gone beyond the veil?
Or are we flowing along, singing every new song
No real change in our lives, no wind in our sail
What’s happened to discernment
There’s a good ‘old-fashioned’ word
But I haven’t heard it lately
Many more have never heard!
I feel God’s heart – long for repentance
Let’s get real before the Lord!
Now we “cater for all ages”
“Excellence at every turn”!
Where’s the balance in our worship?
Many for a hymn would yearn!
We seek to “impact nations”
Yet we’ve so much to learn!
We’ll give account to Almighty God!
& it’s so close to Christ’s return.
