Ode to the Praise Band.
When we began we were a ragged sight.
I’m surprised that Blue didn’t run in fright.
We all had skill, maybe not the best.
We put Blue’s leadership to the test.
One of us left before we got started
But it didn’t seem to leave us downhearted.
Many have come and gone over the years
We’ve hugged, we’ve laughed, we’ve shed some tears.
Joy sang Alto but never in service.
That very first Sunday we were all quite nervous.
As part of the band, I was quiet from the start
But the alto came out when it flooded my heart.
Blue threatened Rhonda and I with some gizmo
That would cover the harmonies….but we’d never know.
Kelly, Brian, Robert, Cindy, Richard, Jennifer, were a part
Ella left us then and it just broke her heart
Blue Left for bit then Steve did the same.
We had a new guy….Oh what was his name…
He was really a youngster in spite of his age
He even sent some of us off of the stage.
He didn’t last long or we’d all gone to pot.
Then Alan was here and a rock band we’re not.
He wanted us all to be just like Third Day…
We just couldn’t do it…so he went on his way.
When Cindy moved South then Sherri joined in
We were so glad to have her we were whole once again.
For over ten years we have been doing this mission.
I never thought this service would come to fruition.
A family we are and a family we’ll stay
And my heart will be with you even after today.
Each gift in your bag is a piece of my heart
I love each of you….and I have from the start!
Happy Monday to all....God Bless you all and Keep it real today!
