Bride-to-Be Escapes from Bridal Shower to Catch Concert

Seeing as it's April now, we thought we'd include this story about a shower ... a bridal shower. This fan wasn't the runaway bride, but she did bolt from her own bridal shower to catch our concert on time:
Your music is such a great witness. We have been to see you at State College several times and enjoyed it thoroughly. I almost put off my own bridal shower because you were going to be nearby. Fortunately, I was able to escape early enough to catch your show. We also listen to your music on the way to and from our puppet shows all the time. The success of your lyrics to connect with teens has prompted me to ask about using them in another setting.
I am Lutheran and we have a two-year confirmation program. Even though the overarching church keeps drifting farther away from its Biblical roots, there are many of us in the "trenches" who recognize that a lasting relationship with Jesus is the only way to salvation. We teach that in our confirmation program, but we are always looking for new ways to connect kids to that message.
I would like to use your music at the start of the class if it is germane to the topic of the lesson that day. To make that effective, though, I would also like to reprint the lyrics for each student so that they knew what you were singing instead of just parroting the popular music versions. Is that something that would be permissible?
