Green Pastures

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER! A SAYING WE RECALL
BUT IS IT REALLY GREENER THERE OR DIFFERENT AT ALL

IT SEEMS THAT MOSTLY ALL THE TIME THE PROBLEMS THAT WE LEAVE
MYSTERIOUSLY SEEM TO REAPPEAR IN NEW RELATIONSHIPS WE WEAVE

THE CHANGE MUST BE WITHIN OURSELVES WE SEEM TO BLAME THE OTHER
WE’RE SURE THAT ALL IS GONNA CHANGE WHEN WE GET ANOTHER

OH THAT GREENER GRASS YOU’RE SEARCHING FOR YOU’LL NEVER FIND, I’M SURE
UNLESS YOU START WITHIN YOUR HEART YOU’LL BE SEARCHING EVERMORE

GRASS NEEDS TO BE WATERED EVERYDAY AND TO BE SOFTLY SPOKEN TO
GRASS NEEDS THE SUN NOT JUST THE RAIN TO MAKE THAT GREEN SHINE THROUGH

GRASS ALSO NEEDS A LOT OF LOVE TO MAKE IT GROW REAL TALL
AND SHOULD YOU NEGLECT ANYONE OF THESE IT WILL NOT GROW AT ALL

SO BEFORE YOU SEARCH FOR GREENER GRASS STOP AND TAKE A GLANCE
OF THE GREEN GRASS GOD HAS BLESSED YOU WITH THAT YOU MAY WANT TO GIVE THAT CHANCE

SOMETIMES WE MOVE TOO HASTELY AND THEN TRY TO RECOVER
THE LOVES WE LEFT TORN ALL APART AND BY THEN THEY HAVE ANOTHER

SO GO AHEAD AND GIVE THAT CHANCE I’M SURE YOU’LL BE SURPRISED
FOR THE GREEN GRASS THAT YOU’RE SEARCHING FOR IS RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES!

Differences

Our differences make us special,
it is no more black and white.
It’s all colors of the rainbow,
that make the world so right.

It is a blending of the races
that continue day by day
and it is God who made all people
in his very special way.

So who are we to judge another
for the color of their skin
for it is God who made all people
the one who’s always been

So when we have a hatred and
that goes for black and white
because of ones complexion
then we doubt Gods work and might.

God made all the angels the sun,
the moon and stars
He also made the animals
look how different they all are

Respect and love each other
and open up your mind
to all the world around you and
let your heart be kind
For when you die and go to heaven
God just may not let you in
It will be because of all your hatred
and not the color of your skin.
