An Honest and Good Heart

Lyrics: Matthew 13: 3-9, 23, Mark 4: 3-8, Adapted by Peter B. Allen
Composer: Peter B. Allen

When a large crowd from many towns had gathered around Jesus,
He told them this parable:
A farmer went out to sow his seed,
And as he sowed some fell on the path.

As people walked by they crushed it down,
And the birds came and ate the seed.

And some seed fell on rocky soil,
And when they grew they soon dried up,
For they had no roots, and no water.

And some seed fell among the thorns,
And the thorns sprang up and choked the seed.

But the rest of the seed fell on good ground,
But the rest of the seed fell on good ground,
But the rest of the seed fell on good ground,
Where it grew and brought forth a thirty times,
Or sixty times, or a hundred times what was sown.

If you have ears to hear, listen. If you have ears to hear, listen.

Planted in the soil of an honest heart, planted in the soil of a good heart,
Are they that hear the word and hold it close, and bring forth much fruit,
And bring forth much fruit.

Planted in the soil of an honest heart, planted in the soil of a good heart,
Are they that hear the word and hold it close, and bring forth much fruit,
And bring forth much fruit, and bring forth much fruit.

Planted in the soil of an honest heart, planted in the soil of a good heart,
Planted in the soil of an honest heart, planted in the soil of a good heart.

You Are The Light of the World

Lyrics: Matthew 5: 14-16, Adapted by Peter B. Allen
Composer: Peter B. Allen

You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.

A city that stands on a hill cannot be hid.
Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bowl,
But on a stand that it may give light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men,
Let your light so shine before men,
That they may see your good works,
And glorify your Father, and glorify your Father,
And glorify your Father, and glorify,
And glorify your Father, which is in heaven,
Which is in heaven, which is in heaven.

You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.
You are the light of the world.

One Lost Sheep

Lyrics: Matthew 18:12-14, Luke 15:4-7, Adapted by Peter B. Allen
Composer: Peter B. Allen

What would you do if you had a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost?
Would you not leave the ninety-nine on the hill, and look for the one that was
lost?

And when you found it I’m sure that you would be more happy
For that one than for all of the ninety-nine that were not lost;

Than all of the sheep that were not lost.
And you would put it on your shoulders and carry it home.

And call your friends and neighbors together and say to them let’s celebrate,
Let’s celebrate, let’s celebrate. For I have found my sheep which was lost,

For I have found my sheep, found my sheep, found my sheep which was lost.
In the same way there is much more happiness in heaven over one sinner
that repents

Than there is over ninety-nine just men who don’t need a change of heart;
More than there is over ninety-nine just men who don’t need a change of
heart.

The Pearl of Great Price

Lyrics: Matthew 13:45-46, Matthew 7:7-8, Adapted by Peter B. Allen

Composer: Peter B. Allen

The kingdom of heaven is like a treaman looking for the finest pearls.
And when he found the pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had,

And bought the pearl. The field. When a man found it he hid it again and then
In his joy he went and sold all that he had and bought the field.

The kingdom of heaven is like a man looking for the finest pearls.
A bought the pearl. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;

Knock and the door will be opened to you. For if you ask you will receive;
And he who seeks will find; to him who knocks the door will open.
To him who knocks the door will open.

=============================

The Wise and Foolish Builders

Lyrics: Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 6:47-49, Adapted by Peter B. Allen
Composer: Peter B. Allen

Anyone who hears my words and acts upon them
Is like a wise man who built his house upon a rock.
Then the rain fell and the floods came and beat against the house
But it did not fall for it was built on solid rock. And it did not fall.
For it was built on solid rock. But anyone who hears my words and
Does not act upon them is like a foolish man who built his house
On sand on sand on sand.
Then the rain fell and the floods came and beat against the house
And it fell with a great crash.

=============================

The Good Samaritan

Lyrics: Luke 10:29-37, Adapted by Peter B. Allen
Composer: Peter B. Allen

A man was walking from city to city, and fell among thieves
Who stole his clothes and left him half dead.

And by chance there passed by a priest who saw the man,
Then crossed to the other side, turning his head.

And as the man lay bleeding a clergy man passed and looked at the man,
Then crossed to the other side, turning his head.

But a certain Samaritan as he traveled by came to the man
And was filled with compassion for him.

And as the man lay bleeding a clergyman passed And looked at the man
Then crossed to the other side turning his head.

But a certain samaritan as he travelled by came to the man
And was filled with compassion for him.

And went to him and dressed his wounds, pouring in oil and wine,
And took him to an inn and took care of him.

And in the morning when he left he gave a days wages to the innkeeper there,
And told him: “Take care of him. And if you spend more,
I’ll pay you back the next time I’m here.”

Now which of these three do you think was neighbor to him that fell among
thieves?
It was he that showed mercy, he that showed mercy, he that showed mercy.
Go and do likewise.
