GOD Needs Men That Will Stand In The Gap
1.
I fear we have some preachers running through this land today
Not preaching ‘cause somebody’s lost, but preaching for the pay
They know that if their crowd gets small their finances will too
So they just let the standards down, any old way will do
Chorus
GOD needs men that will stand in the gap
Keep the sheep inside the fence and chase the goats all out
GOD needs men that will preach and not be proud
Won’t let down the standards just to have a crowd
2.
Those good old grey haired daddies, they would stand right up and preach
They were anointed by GOD’S mighty power and sinners they would reach
They weren’t afraid to say that sin is still a sin
They weren’t afraid to preach the Word, GOD said walk within
3.
I remember how they use to preach, “You don’t go to the show
You know that that’s all idleness and you don’t have time to go”
Now old Satan’s laughing, he’s tickled to the bone
‘Cause he’s deceived the people and put the pictures in their homes
4.
I remember how they use to preach, “women ought to have long hair,
11th chapter 1st Corinthians, sister, you can read it there”
Now they’ve let the standards down and the church is in a mess. They use to preach, “the Holy Ghost will teach folks how to dress”
5.
I remember how they use to preach, “men ought not have long hair. 11th chapter 1st Corinthians, brother, you can read it there”. Now they’ve let the standards down and preach for worldly fame. They use to preach, “if a man has long hair to him it is a shame”
