Sorry for lightweight blogging recently. If I had the time I'd record the audio of this for you too. If anyone wants to use it before Sunday, let me know and I'll give you the chords etc. But the tune and feel of the song is very much like My Old Man's A Dustman.
My text for our All Age Easter Sunday is Matthew 28:16-20, so I came up with this.
I went into a garden and asked the gardener
How will I grow my fruit and veg, I’d like to know please sir
He said “I’ll give you good advice and tell you what you need
Sit down my son and listen to the lesson of the seed."
Plant it down, down, down, down, down into the ground
Let it lay, lay, lay, lay through the month of May
Watch it rise, rise, rise, rise, high into the skies
Then it grow, grow, grow, better fruit you’ll never know.
Well Jesus wants his people to spread throughout the earth
To share good news that anyone can have a second birth
Come everyone get grafted in it is your greatest need
But first, Jesus has to play the part of the Seed.
He went down, down, down, down, down into the ground
There He lay, lay, lay, lay on the Saturday
Then He rise, rise, rise, rise, high into the skies
So we go, go, go, tell the world what we know
