01. Come Around

Not Without Love
by Jimmy Needham



 

I thought Iíd win them all with words
Iíd say a smooth little line to win the room every time
And theyíd be moved by what they heard
My tongue as empty as my heart
Itís not enough to play the part
O Jesus give me more than words

CHORUS
We pass out paper facts all week but they wonít come around
Apologetic reasoning, but they wonít come around, come around
Thereís only one way theyíll come and itís love

I am a one man marching band
And youíll be mighty surprised to realize just how Iím playing my songs
Itís all live music ten till one
Come hear some cymbal crashing, son
And maybe hear me beat the gong

(Chorus)

Men with other men loving the mammon more than God
Man, theyíre in a sinking ship and who can save them?
God can
Maybe for a minute I can get back to the heart of it
Sure Iíve got zeal, but does love have a part in it?
Passionate words and beautiful phrases
They just donít mean much if I donít have Jesus in it

(Chorus)

And itís love

Behind the Song:
ĒSeveral years ago, I was in a very legalistic place in my walk with God. Donít get me wrong, I was very passionate, very zealous. Everywhere I went I preached the Gospel to people and handed out tracts. On the surface, it seemed as though things were going well for me spiritually, but nothing could have been further from the truth. During that time, God began to expose my heartís condition to me. Here is what I learned: I can share the Good News with everyone I meet, dish out all the right theology, and have all the zeal in the world, but if I donít have love for people and love for God, itís all for nothing. That is the heartbeat of this song.Ē Ė Jimmy Needham
