You’ve Got a Text
Parody of "You’ve Got a Friend" by James Taylor
((Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21, Romans 10:13, Revelation 3:20))

When your debts have doubled
And you need a cell phone plan
Where nothing will cost you a roaming price
Hold the line – I think you need -- Acts 2, verse 21
So listen up – Peter gives smart advice

You just call on the name
Of the Lord, who is the I Am
He'll come right in – oh, yeah, baby -- and free you from sin
If you slip, stumble, or fall
All you got to do is call
And you'll see there, yeah, yeah, yeah -- you've got a text

If there's scars upon you
And your heart is full of doubts
And you don't -- know where to begin to go
Seek your heav'nly Savior and call Christ's name out loud, now
You'll find He's knockin' upon your door

You just call on that name
And you know -- who is the I Am
Look up Romans – go get that mail -- and read chapter 10
10:13 sums up it all, yeah
Now you've got the news from Paul
And you'll see there, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a text
Which Peter received from Joel
Refer to Joel 2:32
Well, He'll save your soul if you'll let Him
Oh, yeah, now so won't you let Him?

You just call on Christ's name (on Christ's name)
And for whosoever does that
He'll come right in
To free you from sin
Oh, baby, don't you know now
Check with Saint Peter or Paul
They know all you got to do is call-all
The Lord'll be there, yes, He will, yo -- you've got a text
You've got a text, yeah
Ain't it good to know you've got a text
Ain't it good to know you've got a text
Oh, yeah, yeah -- you've got a text

Romans 10:13
for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
