Home Truths

Matthew 13:54-58


Going home

Familiar sights and sounds

Familiar friendly faces

This is my home ground

People know my family

Know the place I stay

Welcome back – staying long?

We heard you’d been away


They know the outward story

Face and figure fine

They know the way I walk

Seen it time on time

But they do not see the inner me

Not until I say

And when I do the words disturb

Better I go away


It takes us by surprise you see

This clever clogs today

We thought he was a workingman

Fair job for fair day’s pay

But it seems he has a wisdom

And an eloquence to boot

Not what we were expecting

Go on go on get out!
