Congregation congregating
Sisters baking
Brothers hand shaking

Congregating & faking
Tsk tsking, heads shaking, & hating

Talking ‘bout who late
No he didn’t bring a date
Chile, now you know her hair is fake

Looking down their noses, mouths tight
In church this morning, but where was she last night
That dress is much too tight
Tell her off I just might

Congregation congregating
Congregating & faking
Tsk tsking & heads shaking
Congregating & hating

Morals & values have gone too far
What ever happened to come as your are
Greeting newcomers with open arms
Providing cover from the storm
Protecting ALL from harm

Who are you are to pick & chose
Folks want to come & y’all give ‘em the blues
Who cares where she was last night
Maybe this morning she awakened to the light

Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

Thank you, Lord for waking me up this morning
Mumbling, grumbling, stretching & yawning

Thank you, Lord for food to eat
Clothes to wear, shoes for my feet

Thank you, Lord for rent to pay
Makes me aware I have somewhere to stay

Thank you, Lord for a job to go to
Even though I may not feel like or want to

Thank you, Lord for friends & family
Someone to love and care for me

This is not all I thank you for
So much more in my life to be thankful for

Most of all, Lord thank you for You
Please forgive the moments I neglect to
