Are You Sitting Comfortably?
by Tommy Dunn

Ask the thirsty why they've no water, or turn on the tap?
Ask the lost why they're wandering, or draw them a map?
Ask the drowning why they're struggling, or throw them a line?
Ask the starving why they're hungry, or lead them in to dine?

We say it's not our problem, as we give opinion voice
It may not be our problem, but it'll always be our choice
So 'til the day that He returns, bringing Love as his Holy Word
Let's disturb the comfortable to comfort the disturbed

And give the homeless people a place to lay their head
Tell every Nation's victims their children will be fed
Change our way of thinking, make a plough of every sword
And testify the simple truth that Jesus is our Lord

His Love for us, beyond compare, let it be our guiding code
And may we love each other thus as we walk this narrow road
For in the end we will be asked if we have played our part
And we'll be judged upon that day on what is in our heart

Ask the thirsty why they've no water, or turn on the tap?
Ask the lost why they're wandering, or draw them a map?
Ask the drowning why they're struggling, or throw them a line?
Ask the starving why they're hungry, or lead them in to dine?
