Lyrics

PERFECT BLEND
Carlene Thissen and Martha Christian c) 2013
Carlene Thissen, 239-290-5558, carlene_thissen@yahoo.com


VERSE 1:

He came with his disciples
To a place called Bethany
Welcomed to the home
Of Martha and Mary
Mary joined the men, to hear the Master speak
Martha thought about the food they'd need

CHORUS:

Mary sat at Jesus' feet, waiting for each word
Martha knew just what He'd need, she kept on with her work
Help me find a way, to be a perfect blend
Of Mary's heart and Martha's hands

VERSE 2:

Martha told the Lord,
"It doesn't seem quite fair,
I'm doing all this work
While Mary listens there,
I know that you'll be hungry, though I long to hear your voice,"
He said, "Mary made the better choice."

CHORUS

VERSE 3:

I turn off my alarm
Lie still, and pray
There's so much to get done
It's gonna be a busy day
Give me time to listen, time for working, too
Time for peace in everything I do
