What Makes Up Your Song?


Romans 12:4-5
New Living Translation (NLT)

4 Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, 5 so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

The Truth of the Song

It seems so very simple
If you give it just a glance
But a song is made of many parts
If you give it half a chance

First it has a melody
Some music, if you will
A composition of the soul
To give the heart a thrill

Yet hand in hand the lyrics walk
To give meaning to the tale
Without those very special words
The song’s story would surely fail

The story’s set in verses
Each one tells us but a part
Followed by the same refrain
That sets each verse apart

Then every song must have a beat
To set the tapping of the drum
It sets the tone of how it feels
And starts the listener to hum

And there exists a genre
That envelops it all the while
It might be folk or roll and rock
That gives away its style

So you see, as with many things
They’re more complicated than they appear
And we must know what’s going on out of sight
Before their value becomes quite clear
