I was recently saddened to hear that someone whose song once gladdened my heart by its simple glorification of Christ has turned to mostly singing songs that are worldly and make no mention of God. I wrote the following poem(song) to express my feelings.
Sing for Him
'For God, not for riches or fame'
Said the girl when she made her debut,
'I'll sing all my songs to Your Name,
May my music bring glory to You.'
Her song won its way to our hearts
And this 'nobody' soon was a star,
A hit on the musical charts
Idolised by her fans near and far.
Forgotten the promise once made
Now the blaze of the spotlight's supreme,
God is hidden somewhere in the shade
Unnoticed, unwanted, unseen.
You'd never have made it this far
And the lights would have dimmed long ago,
Though you're seen by the world as a star
It's God's gifting to you and you know!
Return to the One you once knew,
He Who filled up your soul with sweet song
In the days before your debut
Before riches and fame came along.
He faithfully waits in the wings
While you prance on the catwalk of fame
'Till the day you once more will sing
The songs that bring praise to His name.
