02. The Twenty-First Time

The Twenty-First Time
by Monk & Neagle



 

Nowhere to live
Nowhere to fall
He used to have money
But heís wasted it all
His face is a photograph burned in mind
But I pretend not to see him for the twenty-first time

He sleeps under stars, itís all he can afford
His blanketís an old coat heís had since the war
He stands on the corner of Carter and Vine
But I pretend not to see him for the twenty-first time

He may be a drifter whoís grown old and gray
But what if itís Jesus and I walk away
I say Iím the body and drink of the wine
But I pretend not to see him for the twenty-first time

Sheís 29 but she feels 48
She canít raise three kids on minimum wage
Sheís crying in back of the welfare line
But I pretend not to see her for the twenty-first time

She may be a stranger trying to get through the day
But what if itís Jesus and I walk away
I say Iím the body and drink of the wine
But I pretend not to see her for the twenty-first time

This is a call for a change in my heart
I realize that Iíve not been doing my part
When I needed a Savior, I found it in Him
He gave to me, now Iíll give back to them

Drifter or stranger, daughter or son
Iíll look for Jesus in everyone
ĎCause I am the body and drink of the wine
And Iím thankful thereís more than the twenty-first time

Behind the Song:
ďĎThe Twenty-First Timeí is a song inspired by my wife, Micah, who for our entire marriage has been a true picture of compassion in my life,Ē says Trent. ďAnytime she sees someone in need, she wants to stop and help. Sheíll take food to the park to see if she can find anyone homeless or hungry, when Iím the guy who says, ĎWe donít have time.í This song grew out of being convicted by her example, her spirit, her compassion.Ē - Trent Monk (Monk & Neagle)
