Come and listen to my story about a man named Matt
A poor pulpiteer, Indiana he was at
And then one day Synod needed someone new
And Matthew they found and brought him to St. Lou . . .
“-is,” that is . . . Purple Palace, big IC . . .
Well, the first thing you know, ol’ Matt’s in Human Care
But then folk said, “Matt, find a higher chair!”
Said, “Koinonia and at peace we ought to be”
So they loaded up the structure, gave him the IC . . .
Halls, that is . . . Cubicles, mission boards . . .
Well, now “It’s Time” to say hello to Matt and all his team
And they would like to tell you folks, “We’ve got a threefold theme”
Witness, Mercy, Life Together are the things we ought to know
So let’s listen to our captain as he tells us now, “Let’s go!”
“Go,” that is . . . Gospel style, take the law off . . .
Y’all come back now, hear?
