​Message To The People

This song is by Shirley Caesar and appears on the album From the Heart (1978).

I've got a message for the people, yes I have, deliver the message
A message for the people, God told me to deliver the message

Do you find yourself in the deepest hole, that you can find, well?
Listen, your life is spinning around and your up seems to be down
You're in deeper than you've ever been

You're time is not yet, oh you'll regret it
If you're too late
Let me tell you, young man, you need to be saved
I've got a message for the people, will you please hear my message

If you can't find your way
You've got to hold on to something
I know of a friend, he'll reach out and pull you in, save your life
If you just let him come near

Got a message for the people, deliver the message
God said, Shirley, I got a message for the people, please hear my message

Your time is not yet, oh Lord, you'll regret it
If you're too late, cause you will be saved
Listen to me, God's got so much entrusted in your position
But God's main concern is the condition of your heart
Don't forget about my message, remember my message
Remember, don't forget

I got a message to the people

We got a message to the people, we won't stop for anything, we've got a message
We got a message to bring, we won't stop for anything, we've got a message
