The Scarecrow And The King

Dave Godfrey
Verse 1
The nations around Israel
Had gods of wood and stone
The Prophet Jeremiah said
Don't make those gods your own
Precious silver human hands
What good can idols do
And when it comes to lasting things
This scripture is true
Chorus 1
They're like a scarecrow in a melon patch
Can't walk can't talk
Can't do anything (that's lasting)
Like a scarecrow in a melon patch
Verse 2
And people in the world today
Make gods of many things
Though idols remain powerless
To forgive all man's sins
Football players top Pop-stars
Are good at what they do
But when it comes to lasting things
This scripture is true
Chorus 2
They're like a scarecrow in a melon patch
Can't walk can't talk
Can't do anything (that's lasting)
Like a scarecrow in a melon patch
Verse 3
Like Jeremiah long ago
I'll gently bow the knee
To the God who made the Universe
And gave His life for me
Mighty Saviour Jesus Christ
You're good at all You do
And when it comes to lasting things
I will trust in You
Chorus 3
Cos' You're the King of all eternity
You walk and talk
You do everything (that's lasting)
You're the King of all eternity
Verse 4
I worship You Lord Jesus
I worship You Lord Jesus
I worship You Lord Jesus
You're the King of all eternity
