Kingdom Song Hangover

    Aside from a song or two at the Memorial the last few years, I haven't been exposed to any Kingdom songs in a long time (5+ years) yet certain lyrics keep popping into my head quite frequently.

    "There is joy in the service for all, it's the work Jesus did you'll recall"

    "Soon there'll be great banqueting in which the meek will share, this good news of the kingdom let us preach"

    "On many occasions God spoke long ago by means of his prophets on earth here below"

    "Then they will know your ways are just and true, then they will know throughout the whole creation, all you have purposed you will surely do"

    There are others but those are the ones that most frequently inhabit my head. I've even been known to sing the lines to my new (non-Witness) wife. Is there ever going to be an end to this? Is this the result of the deep conditioning and programming? I grew up in it so I've heard these lines countless times.

    Anyone else?

    "There is joy in the service for all, it's the work Jesus did you'll recall"

    "There is a place in the service for all; it is the work Jesus did, you'll recall ..." Song is titled Move Ahead.

    I memorized all of them. All.

    It doesn't go away, but it does get better over time.

    "Even though mendacious men the truth deny

    We know it's impossible for God to lie...........

    tum ti tum ti tum, ti tum

    Therefore let us preach the word with diligence

    For in it we have the utmost confidence

    I loved move ahead! I think of some song lyrics from time to time.

  • read good books
    read good books

    ...These must be restored to their places

    By Witnesses with bold beaming faces. ( witness with a bold beaming face)

    I thought this was one of the funnier lyrics

    They've all changed - the new songs are even crappier than the old.

  • snowbird

    Then forward you witnesses, ever strong of heart

    Rejoice that in God's work you too may have a part

    Go tell far and wide God's new order is near

    That e'er long its rich blessing will be here

    "Walking in integrity"

    Even now, I get a lump in my throat at "And I shall march around your altar grand/ to make thanksgiving heard aloud througout the land"

    The songs I love are the ones that sing about Christian things everybody believes not just JWs

    "The Power of Kindness"

    Snowie - I loved the "Go tell far and wide"

    Didnt think I'd have tears tonite on JWD
