We sure appreciated all the work that you have done
You always gave your best and never left your job undone
So it is with a deep regret that I must tell you so
I’m afraid that times are rough; we’ll have to let you go….

Your car is working very well; I’ve fixed it up real good
I’ve rotated all the wheels replaced the parts I should
You can pick it up; it’s sitting out here in the lot
I’m afraid it cost a whole lot more than I first thought

Your boyfriend sure is something; all the girls sure envy you
Secretly they wish they were the one he held on to
They whisper words like ‘lucky’ and ‘wish it was me he chose’
Yesterday I saw him kissing your friend’s sister Rose

Within my life experience I have come to hate this word
Hinging positive and negative to change the message heard
Until one day I thought how I was doomed eternally
Jesus suffered, died and rose to set each sinner free
I would have no hope at all, no joy, no victory
Jesus loves me this I know and that’s enough for me

Very rarely will anyone die for
a righteous man, though for a good man
someone might possibly dare to die. BUT God
demonstrates His own love for us in this:
while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom.5:7-8
