Hi, this is God, here.
Talking to me used to be a simple affair.
Moses only had to see a burning bush,
And he'd pull up a chair.
Well it's been a long time since we talked in that way,
If you're wondering what to say

Sing me no deep hymn of devotion.
Sing me no slow, sweet, melody.

Sing it to one, one of the broken,
And brother, you're singing, singing to me.
I remember King David,
With his harp and his beautiful, beautiful songs.
I answered his prayers,
And showed him a place where his music belongs.
It's not too far from here, come get up off your knees.

If you're looking for ways to please,
Sing me no psalm, you're not King David.
Sing me no high, hushed, Glory Be.
Sing it to one, one of the broken,
And brother, you're singing, singing to me.

Sing me no deep hymn of devotion.
Sing me no slow, sweet, melody.
Sing it to one, one of the broken,
And brother, you're singing, singing to me.
