Let church bells ring
Let children sing
Even if they don’t know why, let them sing
Why drown their joy?
Stifle their voice?
Just because you’ve lost yours

May our jaded hearts be healed
Amen

Let old men dance
Lift up their hands
Even if they are naïve, let them dance
You’ve seen it all
You watch them fall
Wash off your face and dance

May our weary hearts be filled with hope
Amen

    General CommentFor me this song is a nice little reminder. Sometimes I'll reluctantly go to church and find myself instantly annoyed by little things--people singing off key, clapping off beat, the older people dancing like crazy, people saying the stereotypical things you expect to hear Christians say. But then God stops me in my tracks and lovingly calls me to repent and start to just focus on Him. And when I do, I start to see others' worship differently. It still makes me laugh sometimes, between the goofy dance moves and the Christianese, but I can appreciate its strangeness somehow without my judgement coming in to distract me. Afterall, it's not about how we worship but who we worship.
