About "Hey World"             



"Hey, World" came as a result of watching the news one night.  Prior to that, I hadn't watched the news or read a newspaper or news magazine in around 4 years.  After about 20 minutes of being battered and barraged and stunned by bad news, I turned off the television, went downstairs, and began to sing to the Lord.  The first thing out of my mouth was, "Hey, World!"

From the real Author:


Matthew 1:23

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)..


Luke 1:30-32

But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. 


Galatians 1:3-4

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,


John 19:15

But they shouted, “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!”


1 Corinthians 6:20

you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.


Matthew 22:36-40

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


1 Corinthians 15:51-53

Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Hey, world…if you haven’t heard
God was here, here on this earth
And his name was Jesus and he came to free us
From our sins, from ourselves, from the curse


Hey, world…we should be condemned
For driving nails in our Savior’s hands
Yet with love He sought us, with His blood He bought us
With His Word He taught us this command


Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, body and soul
And love one another like sisters and brothers
Forgiving each other, oh


Hey, world…if you want to go
Get on board, before the whistle blows
For there will be no grieving when it’s time for leaving
This old world for our eternal home

Hey world…….Hey world…...Hey world
Hey world…….Hey world…...Hey world


CHORUS 2 (Choir repeat twice)
(Hey world)
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, body and soul
(Hey world)
(all my sisters)
And love one another like sisters and brothers
(and my brothers)
Forgiving each other, oh
(Forgiving each other)
(Love the Lord your god with all your heart)
(Body and soul)
(Love one another)
(forgiving each other)
