NEW LIVES FOR OLD

שבת שלום

(Shabbat Shalom = A Peaceful Sabbath)

I heard a missionary sing this song at our little church when I was just a kid and I cried as I listened to the story being told in the song. It must have been a calling by the Holy Spirit way back then, because now I hand out gospel tracts everywhere I go, whether it’s shopping, to the gas station, to the post office, you name it, that’s where I go with my gospel tracts and I hand them out to everyone I communicate with. I just smile and say something like, “Can I give you some good news?” And I give them the gospel tract. I have handed out hundreds of them and only five people have ever refused to receive one.

I found this song again on You Tube in recent years. I like to think of it as my song. I hope it becomes your song too. God bless you.

New Lives for Old

“They say he ran a carnival, he used to come to town, till one September afternoon, he shut it down.

They tell me something happened, some say he lost his mind; now most September afternoons, this is what you find:

OLD MAN ON THE CORNER

An old man on the corner where he used to sell his show, now he shouts what sounds like foolishness, as the people come and go.

New lives for old, warm hearts for cold; have I got a deal for you today, come on, step right this way, get your new lives for old.

He puts it in the paper, he goes from door to door; the people say, He’s such a fool, he’ll come back for more.

Old friends are mostly puzzled, they don’t know what to say, cause ever since that afternoon, he’s just been that way. It’s like the old man died and someone came to take his place. Now he just stands out there yelling, with a smile upon his face:

WARM HEARTS FOR COLD

New lives for old, warm hearts for cold; have I got a deal for you today, come on, step right this way, get your new lives for old.

Remembering this story, as I once passed through that town, I thought I ought to stop and see if he’s still around.

There was someone on that corner, where I heard he’d always stand.

He chuckled when I asked him where I could find the man. He said, Thank God, that crazy fool finally died last spring.

And I said, I’ll take up where he left off then, cause I’m pushing the same thing –

JESUS SAVES

New lives for old, warm hearts for cold; have I got a deal for you today, come on, step right this way, to get your new lives for old.

New lives for old, warm hearts for cold; have I got a deal for you today, come on, step right this way, to get your new lives for old.
