Take Me To The Alley

Take Me To The Alley

I heard this song some time back, and recently I was reminded of it and have shared it with a number of people. It seems that Jesus wants to speak through these words afresh. I was privileged to be asked to speak at a church recently, and used this song as the basis for what Jesus wanted to say.  If anyone wants to hear what Jesus is saying to his followers and to his church, then listen to the words of this song. I believe this man is expressing the heart of Jesus in this song.

Here are the words.

Well, they guild their houses in preparation for the King
And they line the sidewalks
With every sort of shiny thing
They will be surprised
When they hear him say

Take me to the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me to the lonely ones
That somehow lost their way

Let them hear me say
I am your friend
Come to my table
Rest here in my garden
You will have a pardon

Take me to the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me to the lonely ones
That somehow lost their way

Let them hear me say
I am your friend
Come to my table
Rest here in my garden
You will have a pardon

They will be surprised
When they hear him say

Take me to the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me, take me, take me

I’m not going to say much more. Jesus speaks for himself through these words I feel. The only thing I will say is note the encouragement at the end.

“Take me, take me, take me…..”

Not something. Someone.
