For FBC Richmond youth group reunion

The bus was green, the note was blue, the driver is good, his heart is true

The man was called, he brought his wife, they served the church with their whole life

The youth retreats, with orders sealed, helped us grow, our hearts were healed

The Bible taught, they showed their love, thus we learned of God above

Others joined them in the fray, to teach the youth how they should pray

These brave adults who taught us truth, they cared for every single youth

And in their footsteps, we then walked, and often listened as they talked

Of how our lives could closer be, walk with God in intimacy

Now the days have turned to years, we’ve had some smiles, and yes, some tears

But God is still here, by our side, His grace is deep, His love is wide

We have become the leaders who, these leaders saw in me and you

Our turn to teach the younger crowd, to reach their hearts with music loud

The gift that God has given true, by those who’ve gone ahead of you

The gift of faith that you can share, with other people, everywhere

Are you engaged? Does your faith work? You’re not like those who often shirk

Our time is short, our mission grave, to win the fight we must be brave

To care for folks and reach the lost, we sacrifice and count the cost

For God has given much to us, and we give back without a fuss

Our love to give, our gift to show, with humble hearts, we bow down low

We serve the risen, mighty King, He is the Lord of everything

Your life He always will direct, so walk before Him circumspect

One day soon, we’re going home, to revel in His kingdom come
