New shade of gray

“A new shade of gray”

I saw Jesus just yesterday
He only had a simple thing to say
Can you watch out for my children
Teach them how to play
While I’m gone
You can show them the way
You can show them the way

I saw Jesus at a local cafe
He asked me what can I bring you, today?
And I thought about the answer
Tried to look the other way
He said “your peace is in time not in the play, it’s not in the play”

Pray for me in the morning
Pray for me at night
Pray for me most of your God fearing life

Have it painted up to look like
It’s all black and white
Jesus I’m in a new gray tonight
I’m in a new gray tonight

But I may, get it right
Yet I may get it right

Pray for me in the morning
Pray for me at night
You can pray for me most of your God fearing life

And children of children
We’re all taught alike
Jesus, I’m in a new gray tonight
I’m in a new gray tonight
I’m in a new gray
