JUST A CARPENTER?

Before I became a Christian and particularly as a child I had thought that Jesus was nothing more than a character from a history book. A carpenter from Nazareth or ďBaby JesusĒ of the nativity.  I had no idea that He even existed at all apart from stories I had heard. Itís clear that multitudes of others think the same. This got me thinking of what He has revealed of Himself to me as I have got to know Him.  Reflecting on this I realised of course that He is much, much more than just a carpenter and so I started to write a song on this theme. Quite unconsciously as I was writing, the truths that He is among many other things, the only way to God, the only truth of God and the only life from God began to be woven into the fabric of the song.

Being a country music fan it was inevitable that my songs have that feel about them so if your not into country music then, in love, I make absolutely no apologies whatsoever and challenge you with  the question  WHY NOT?   Donít you know that if it ainít country it ainít music!!!!!

Enjoy and share freely

God Bless

JUST A CARPENTER?

Youíre more than just a carpenter to me
Youíre more than just a man from history
When I need some direction and the pathís not clear to see
Youíre not a mystery, You are the way for me

Youíre more than just a carpenter to me
Youíre more than just the babe they came to see
When lies have got my mind locked up and I canít find the key
Youíre not a mystery, You are the truth to me

Bridge

And when I need to put my trust in you
Youíre always there to help and take me through
When others let me down I know that you will still be there
Every day, just a prayer away

Youíre more than just a carpenter to me
Youíre more than just a man from Gallilee
When I am tempted to believe that death can set me free
Youíre not a mystery, You are the life in me

Repeat Bridge

Youíre more than just a carpenter to me
Youíre more than just a man hung on a tree
When I could never meet the debt required to set me free
You were a friend to me, You paid the price for me
When I was bound and shackled to a life of slavery
You broke the chains for me, You gave Your life for me
