Preacher's Tears

How can I tell them,
When they won't listen?
How can I warn them,
When they feel so secure?

How can I explain then
All they'll be missin'?
How can they be ill
Not searching for cure?

They have closed their eyes
They have closed their ears
They have closed their hearts
They die in all their fears

Teach me to help them
So they may hear you.
Teach me to give them
eye salve to see

Teach me to teach them
'til they endear you.
Teach me to love them
As you love me.

They have closed their eyes
They have closed their ears
They have closed their hearts
They die in all their fears

Matthew 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Luke 12:12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Timothy 4:11 These things command and teach.

2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
