The Scarecrow And The King

The nations around Israel had gods of wood and stone
The Prophet Jeremiah said
“Don’t make those goods your own”
Precious silver, human hands, what good can idols do
And when it comes to lasting things, this Scripture is true

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

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

They’re like a scarecrow in a melon patch…

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

‘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

I worship You, Lord Jesus (x3)
You’re the King of all eternity
