Rev. Green's Gospel Hour

People, it’s time for everyone to get involved!
It’s time to put His word on the street!
Let’s put the ‘us’ back in Jesus!
Let’s put the ‘go’ back in God!
Can I get an amen?
Amen! Amen! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Let’s take our message to the people!
Let’s make it fresh and new and alive!
Let’s put the ‘go’ back in the gospel!
Let’s put the ‘hip’ back in worship!
Can I get a hallelujah?
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Amen! Amen!

We need to project a positive image!
We need to show that God is good!
Let’s put a ‘raise’ in our praise!
Let’s get Reverend Green a new Cadillac!
Will you help me to praise the Lord?
Praise the Lord! Amen! Amen! Hallelujah!

Pass the collection plate!


  1. And let's have another Hallelujah for the collection plate ;-)
    Nice one.

  2. It's all about passin' the plate!

  3. Eric,
    Your prompt "reciprocate" comes up at One Single Impression on April 10. Please send your poem and image to me by Friday.

  4. Okay I'm standing up 'hallelujahing with you! And then you go and pass the collection plate. You are such a word master!

  5. Love this cynical approach, Eric:)


  6. I'll just take that collection plate and hold it for safe keeping.

  7. I hear ya. Well said (and witty too....)

    great piece!
