Petra – Seen And Not Heard lyrics

Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on Matthew 7: 3, 5, James 1: 2, Matthew 5: 16

Too many black sheep in the family
Too many stones from a house of glass
They've heard the story, they've heard the lines
But talk is too cheap to change their minds
They want to see some vital signs

Convictions - in the way we live
Convictions - not a narrative
Actions speak a little louder than words

Seen and not heard, seen and not heard
Sometimes God's children should be seen and not heard
There's too much talk and not enough walk
Sometimes God's children should be seen and not heard

Delayed reaction to hostility
Brings us into reality
Cause when we answer in our defense
They can see through the false pretense
They want to see some evidence

Commitment - no more alibis
Commitment - not a compromise
Actions speak a little louder than words

Let your light so shine in all you do
With an answer near when they come to you
Don't let your mouth start talkin'
Until your feet start walkin'

    That there are unlbelivers in the world, and alot of them don't understand or don't want to understand what you say about jesus, or his words alone. So you must follow in the footsteps of jesus. Just like what would jesus do. Start thinking what wouldn't jesus do. He can do everything. So show his love. Love is the most important thing. You show god's love and people will see it. They will be baffled at first. But once they realize how truely happy you are. They'll want it too. They'll begin to change, even if it's for a little bit. The holy spirit will come to them because you let jesus work through you to pass it on. God bless all. Amen.
