lyrics

Based on Luke 11:1–13

VERSE 1
Lil’ Johnny came home from school
Hungry, tired, needin’ some fuel
Went to find some fish sticks in the fridge
Johnny’s dad was standing there, said
“Sit on down, son, and I’ll prepare”
You’ll never guess what that dad did!
Whoa, whoa, what’s the deal?
He served up the weirdest meal—
Sliding on his dinner plate
Johnny saw a rattlesnake!

CHORUS
No good father’s gonna give us something like that
Uh-uh, no way
Our good Father always does us good
When we ask, but you gotta pray

VERSE 2
Lil’ Suzy woke up one day
Hungerin’, hankerin’ for some eggs
When in the room her dad appeared
Then he gave her something strange
It didn’t help her hunger pangs
In fact, her brown eyes filled with tears
Hey hey, my oh my, what’d she see? Why’d she cry?
Breakfast made her want to run—It was a scorpion!

OUTRO
Keep askin’, keep hopin’
Keep knockin’, it’ll open
Keep prayin’, keep seekin’
God knows just what we’re needin’
