Not Just What You Say

Not Just What You Say

Fred Hammond

Not just what you say
Not just what you say
Not just what you say
Not just what you say

Then we can act like we know what love is
When you say how are you doin' do you really wanna know
And are you concerned yeah
And if you had the solution
But it took some of your time or some cash or whatever
Are you willing

Not just what you say
(It's mostly what you do)
Not a game that you play
(To keep the winning hand with you)
Not just wasting time
(With empty words that don't mean much)
Not just how you feel
(When others need your tender touch)
So can you take out some time
(To help somebody else in need)
And when this is done
(The love of God is truly seen)
Then above all
(We need to cover and forgive)
Then we can act like we know what love is

Love is compassion that makes you reach way down
And help your fellow man
So if there's a need and you can be the one
Go and help someone

Not just what you say
(It's mostly what you do)
Not a game that you play
(To keep the winning hand with you)
Not just wasting time
(With empty words that don't mean much)
Not just how you feel
(When others need your tender touch)
So can you take out some time
(To help somebody else in need)
And when this is done
(The love of God is truly seen)
Then above all
(We need to cover and forgive)
Then we can act like we know what love is

Love is all
(Love is all)
All in all
(All in all)
(Forgiving faults
(Forgiving faults)
Great and small
Patient and
(Patient and)
Willing to
(Willing to)
Cover me
(Cover me)
Cover you

Love is kind
(Love is kind )
Don't you know
(Don't you know)
And will not
(And will not)
Seek its own
God is love
(God is love)
Forever more
(Forever more)
Act like it you know
(Act like it you know)
Go handle yours

Not just what you say
(It's mostly what you do)
Not a game that you play
(To keep the winning hand with you)
Not just wasting time
(With empty words that don't mean much)
Not just how you feel
(When others need your tender touch)
So can you take out some time
(To help somebody else in need)
And when this is done
(The love of God is truly seen)
Then above all
(We need to cover and forgive)
Then we can act like we know what love is
