Listen

Listen when somebody tells you something
Listen when somebody speaks
The words that Jesus said
Listen when somebody tells you something
Keep the words of Jesus in your heart
And in your head

Jesus, Jesus was a teacher
Jesus walked through the land
Jesus, Jesus told us stories
To show us how to build our lives
According to God's plan

Two men, two men built their houses
One man built his house on sand
One was smarter than the other
He wentout and built his house
On good and solid ground

Here comes the thunder and the lightning
Here comes the hurricane and storm
One man found that night so frightening
The other man slept soundly in his house
So safe and warm

One man woke up in the morning
Calmly had a cup of tea
The other woke up in a muddle
His head was in a puddle
And his bed was in a tree

Listen when somebody tells you something
Listen when somebody speaks
The words that Jesus spoke
Listen when somebody tells you something
You'll be like the clever man
Who built his house on rock
If you listen, oh listen
Listen, oh listen
If you listen
