WORDS – – – Just thinking

 

I was just thinking of soldier ants marching,

And grains of sand on the shore.

And of how many people praying tonight,

Maybe a million-maybe more.

Can you imagine- just stop and think

How tremendous that sound would be-

A million people praising God

And one of them would be me!

 

I was just thinking-well hoping maybe,

If I could persuade you, and you

And the rest of that million could turn to their friends

And each one added just two.

Can you imagine-just stop and think

A magnificent sound that would be-

Three million people stood praising God

And one of them still would be me!

 

I was just thinking-if we worked hard each day,

Just sharing our love in this way

Three million people all spreading the word

Each bringing one soul to pray.

Can you imagine-just stop and think

How victorious that sound would be-

Six million, twelve million, now the whole world

And one of them still would be me!

 

I was just thinking-getting carried away

My soul can’t imagine the sigh.

The whole world praying and praising God

Everyone getting it right.

Can you imagine-just stop and think

What salvation then we would see

With life eternal and seeing His face

And one of them still would be me!

 

So I was just thinking, just thanking God

That someone chose to tell me.

I’ll look for someone to tell the Good News

The total then will be three.

Can you imagine-just stop and think

A share in God’s love great and true

A share in the sound of the world praising God

The other one there could be you!
