If You’re Gonna Give ‘Em Somethin’

 
 

If You’re Gonna Give ‘Em Somethin’
By Rita Broden

Have you ever noticed how some folks
Will repeat every word you say?
It doesn’t matter what you’ve said
They’ll tell it anyway
And quite often when they tell it
What you’ve said has changed a bit
But that’s what happens to gossip
As it goes from lip to lip!

If you’re gonna give ’em somethin’ to talk about
Make sure they talk about the Lord
To give them more or less than this
Is a price you can’t afford
They’re out there just awaitin’
To repeat every single word
So it’s up to you to make quite sure
That Jesus is what they heard!

Have you ever noticed how some folks
Just don’t know what to do?
They stand around and hem and haw
Just waiting for a clue
If they like what you are doin’
There’s a chance they’ll imitate
So stay in prayer, heal the sick, raise the dead
Get busy folks! It’s late!

If you’re gonna give ’em somethin’ to imitate
Make sure they imitate the Lord
To give them more or less than this
Is a price you can’t afford
They’re out there just awaitin’
They still haven’t got a clue
So when they start to imitate you
Make sure Jesus shines straight through!
