A song to chew on…

To Obey Is Better Than Sacrifice

by Keith Green

To obey is better than sacrifice,

I don’t need your money, I want your life.

And I hear you say that I’m coming back soon,

But you act like I’ll never return.


Well you speak of grace and my love so sweet,

How you thrive on milk, but reject my meat,

And I can’t help weeping of how it will be,

If you keep on ignoring my words.


Well you pray to prosper and succeed,

But your flesh is something I just can’t feed.


To obey is better than sacrifice.

I want more than Sunday and Wednesday nights,

Cause if you can’t come to me every day,

Then don’t bother coming at all.

Lah, lah,lah….


To obey is better than sacrifice.

I want hearts of fire, not your prayers of ice.

And I’m coming quickly, to give back to you,

According to what you have done.
