"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Jesus Would Tell Me to Give!

"Jesus Says, 'Give.'" was one of two theme songs written for the 2015 Feeding the 5000 Families interdenominational food drive campaign. It is a fun song to sing, with the second part echoing the lead through part of the song, and singing harmony with the lead in other parts.

Lyrics
Jesus Would Tell Me to Give!

Drivin' past the man on the side of the road,
Drivin' past the man on the side of the road,
Lookin' for a handout
Lookin' for a handout
Feelin' like I ought to stop and lighten his load.
Feelin' like I ought to stop and lighten his load.
Give him a handout.
Give him a handout.
World says if I give, I am just ‘nother fool,
Givin' to a tramp doesn't look very cool.
If I stop and give, I will risk ridicule.
Jesus would tell me to give!

Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give,
Jesus says, "Give,
Give, and I will give unto you."

Neighbor lost his job, and the weather is cold.
Neighbor lost his job, and the weather is cold.
Kids are lookin' hungry.
Kids are lookin' hungry.
Ought to go and help ‘em out because I've been told,
Ought to go and help ‘em out because I've been told,
"Help feed the hungry."
"Help feed the hungry."
Other people say it is all his own fault.
Rumors aren't kind, but I'll answer God's call.
Why he lost his job doesn't matter at all.
Jesus would tell me to give!

Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give,
Jesus says, "Give,
Give, and I will give unto you."

What's the thing to do when the times are gettin' hard?
What's the thing to do when the times are gettin' hard?
Ever'body's struggling.
Ever'body's struggling.
Gotta share the things I have with love in my heart;
Gotta share the things I have with love in my heart;
Ease someone's struggling.
Ease someone's struggling.
Even though I don't have a whole lot to share,
When my neighbors need me, I'll try to be there.
I'll give what I can so they know that I care. 
Jesus would tell me to give!

Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give,
Jesus says, "Give,
Give, and I will give unto you."

Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give."
Jesus says, "Give,
Jesus says, "Give,
Give, and I will give unto you."
Give, and I will give unto you."
Give, and I will give unto you."
