SHEPHERD TO SHEEP
EMPTY CHAIRS AT CHURCH
(Heb 10:25) not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
As we gather to worship our King
Around the room is a curious thing
Not only do we see who’s there
But scattered about is that empty chair
What causes a seat be lone?
Is someone sick or depressed at home?
Did they stay up late or are sleeping in?
Are they losing their fire because of some sin?
Now Bobby’s got a decent reason
He’s on vacation, it’s hunting season
And Joe, he’s on a business trip
It’s just a week, that’s why he skipped
The Jones’ we haven’t seen in awhile
He got that raise, they’re up in style
And the Williams, if I heard it right
Have soccer so their time is tight
Max and Sarah aren’t getting along
How can they sit and sing a song?
Jose and Mary they’re all tied up
Working on their house and stuff
A game’s on TV, a political debate
I’m pressed for time, I don’t want to be late
A garden to plant, and bills to pay
Maybe we’ll go some other day
Lord, I can see that empty chair
Fill them up so all can be here
Revival, Lord, is what we need
Hear our prayer in all due speed
