You Can't Put God in a Box (chidren's song)

Post by Guest » Sun Dec 27, 2009 3:45 am

My friends and I have been searching for the lyrics to this song and we can't find it anywhere!

The chorus has -

He's bigger! He's stronger! Nobody can know Him down!
Cause you can't put God in a box...

Then there's a part about

If God had a birthday cake how many candles would there be?


Any help would be appreciated, even if someone knows the name of the group that sings it. Thank you!

. GOD IN A BOX

Some people seem to act as if
They've seen the Lord
Like Moses did
But I know, they don't glow at all
They're full of special revelations
They can fool a congregation
Until they stumble and they fall
Oh we must be so very careful
To keep ourselves down off a pedestal
Be quick to hear and slow to speak

' Cause He is strong and we are very weak
And when you've got it figured out
That's just the time to really doubt yourself
' Cause you can't put God in a box
He ain't got no limits
Can't put God in a box
He's way too big
Can't put God in a box
It won't last one minute
Can't put God in a box
' Cause He just won't fit

Well, some people study diligently
To know the truth to set them free
And that's good as long as love isn't lost
But when their own theology
Means more to them than anything
Well, that's bad - they'll become a noisy gong
' Cause Jesus said to follow him
And not your own denomination
Listen closely to the Spirit
Many people never hear it
And when you've got it figured out
That's just the time to really doubt yourself

His ways are higher ways than our ways
His love is greater love than our love
He made the galaxies and He made me

Well, I know I do the same thing too
Fit the Lord into my view
And then I can't see anything
Until I finally realize
Like Job did after many trials
His ways are too wonderful for me
Are you attempting to make God
Look more like you?
We must be so very careful
Humble hearted always prayerful
And when you've got it figured out
That's just the time to really doubt yourself
Yeah, when I've got it figured out
That's just the time
To put my hand over my mouth

Thank you, but no, that's not the one.

My friend remembers part of another verse:

If you had to run a race with God
How fast would you have to run?

My daughter and son use to listen to that "orange cassette" tape all of the time. I have been searching for it everywhere. Did you have any luck locating it?

If You Tried to Put God in a

If you tried to put God in a box, how big would the box have to be?
How strong would you make it, How long would it last if you tried to put God in a box.

Chorus: He's Bigger, He's stronger, Nobody can knock him down
He's faster, He's smarter, than anyone else around
and the good thing is He's nice, He's loving, He's kind....
He's my friend.

If you baked God a birthday cake, How many candles would it take?
could you count them on your fingers, could you count them on your toes
If you bake God a birthday cake

Chorus

If you played hide and seek with God, Could you find a secret place to hide?
Could you cover up your eyes could you take him by surprise
If you played hide and seek with God

Chorus

If you tried to have a race with God, How fast would you have to go?
In the twinkle of an eye, could you leave him far behind
If you tried to have a race with God

Chorus
