I'd Rather See A Sermon

This song is by Bruce Carroll and appears on the album Sometimes Miracles Hide (1991).

I'd see him go to church most every Sunday
And he'd invited me to go a time or two
He made no bones about the fact he was a Christian
And he seemed to know I was looking for some truth
He never looked at me with eyes of condemnation
Though he knew I was uneasy when he'd pray
He was always there to lend a hand
And when he did, he'd always say
That the good Lord and His blessings
Are what made him act that way

I'd rather see a sermon
Than to hear one any day
I'd rather one would walk with me
Than merely show the way
Actions speak much louder
Than all the words can say
That's why I'd rather see a sermon
Than hear one any day

There were times that I would see him from a distance
And he didn't know that I was watching him
He would always take the time to love his children
And he treated his wife like his best friend
I got the call two weeks ago this Monday
That the job I'd had ten years was at an end
He was the first to call and show up on my doorstep
And he said that he would be there
Till we got on our feet again

I thought I'd rather see a sermon
Than to hear one any day
I'd rather one would walk with me
Than merely show the way
Actions speak much louder
Than all the words can say
That's why I'd rather see a sermon
Than to hear one anyday

I never was much for religion
Too many double standard people let me down
But the message this man lived was very simple
He showed me what I needed
And he was there when I let Jesus turn my life around

I'd rather see a sermon
Than to hear one anyday
I'd rather one would walk with me
Than merely show the way
Actions speak much louder
Than all the words can say
That's why I'd rather see a sermon
Than to hear one anyday

Oh, I'd rather see a sermon
Than to hear one anyday
