Then new and improved purple song books that came out in 1966. Then there was the brown song book and a even newer one in 2006.
Thousands of hours wasted singing those stupid songs and their stupid lyrics.
Song 106 "Watch how we walk and watch we talk."
I remember inserting different works in the lyrics to relive the boredom.
"Watch how we walk and watch how we stalk."
Are they really praising their god or telling you to be obedient to their leaders, the governing body? You decide.
song 43 – Stay Awake, Stand Firm, Grow Mighty – “Stay awake, and keep your senses, Always ready to obey. Staying alert to Christ’s direction, through his faithful slave to day. Heed the counsel of the older men, Who protect his sheep and truth defend.”
song 63 – Ever Loyal – “Ever loyal to their guidance. When our brothers take the lead, When they give us clear directions, May our mind and heart give heed.”
song 84 – I Want To – “Oh, what help Jehovah God gave, when he sent the faithful wise slave, With whom we serve with joy, Our powers employ, that meek ones we might help to save.”
song 116 – The Light Gets Brighter – “Our Lord has appointed a trustworthy slave, Through whom He gives food in due season. The light of the truth has grown brighter with time, Appealing to heart and to reason. Our path ever clearer, our steps ever firm, We walk in the brightness of day.”
Song 125 – Loyally Submitting to the theocratic Order – “God provides his steward and his active force. These will ever guide us in our Christian course. So may we be steadfast, seeking God to please, Loyally proclaiming all his wise decrees!”
"The Light Gets Brighter – “Our Lord has appointed a trustworthy slave".....really?
Maybe god is on a dimmer switch because sometimes the light gets brighter and then it gets dim again.
