If I were an apple
hanging on a tree,
I'd give myself
to the first green worm
and together we would be.
He'd make a little hole
and live inside of me.
He would be my best friend
and he'd keep me company
But I am not an apple
hanging on a tree.
I am nothing but
an empty human being
But Jesus wants to come
and live inside of me
and be my best friend
and keep me company.
He wants to show me His way
and He will never leave me
and He will give me ears to hear
and He will give me eyes to see
the perfect plan He has
for Him and for me.
I'm glad I'm not an apple
hanging on a tree.
No, No.

    General CommentSkish, this song does remind me of Sunday school...lol way back when...the good ol' days! I think this song focuses on what's really important. It seems silly, but amid so many doctrines and theological arguements on the pettiest (is that a word) things, it's easy to forget what our faith is actually about. It reminds me about the true simplicity of my faith...I love it.
