Pennies In A Basket

The Lord has blessed me with these songs, and it is a joy to share them with you. Please enjoy the music and consider the scripture references that accompany them.

Luke 11:5-10

Then he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.’ “Then the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man’s boldness he will get up and give him as much as he needs. “So I say to you: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Song Lyrics

If a friend should call you up in the middle of the night
Don’t send them down the road and say you haven’t got the time
You know what really matters most is the love that you could share
The time you give is what it takes to show you really care

And what He needs is so much more than pennies in a basket
Be prepared to give it all if He should ask it

Upon the cross at Calvary the slaying of the lamb
He shed His blood to save us all, He is the great I Am
He rose again as He said He would, and He lives in you and me
He paid the price, He gave it all, salvation wasn’t free

What He gave was so much more than pennies in a basket
Be prepared to give it all if He should ask it

As you go please promise me that you’ll remember this
The Son of Man one lonely night was betrayed with a kiss
A small fist full of silver placed in Judas’ hand
The lure of easy money was the ruin of a man
