Lyrics
I'm not ashamed of the gospel, Because it is the power of God For the salvation of all who believe You know you can have a bad line and still catch a fish, You can be bad to your woman and still end up being kissed, You can take your eye off the ball and still score a goal, But don't ditch the gospel if you want to save souls You don't have to be a monkey if you want to climb trees, You don't have to do a jailbreak if you want to break free, You can do without a guitar if you want to play rock and roll, But don't ditch the gospel if you want to save souls You can be the biggest loser and be on the winning team, You don't have to hit the headlines to end up being seen, You can lean behind your shovel and still dig a hole, But don't ditch the gospel if you want to save souls Well you can lie in bed all morning and find you're getting paid, You can fail in all your subjects, and finally make the grade, You can wrap yourself in cotton and wind up catching cold But don't ditch the gospel if you want to save souls Don't tell me you got something better Don't tell me you got something clever Its a stumbling block baby! To preach the cross is crazy If you're dying in your sins But to us who are being saved It is the power of God Well you can lose in every battle to find you've won the war, You can try to find a planet, and still be wanting more, You can be ever so unlucky and end up striking gold, But don't ditch the gospel if you want to save souls if you want to save souls don't ditch the gospel don't throw it away there's nothing better if you want to save souls
