Welcome to the Hood

Welcome to the Hood




Listen To A Sample Of This Song
We have been rejoicing since the day you made your start
inviting the Master to live inside your heart.
You laid down your life for God's one and only Son.
Now you've knelt before Him, and He's proclaimed, "Well done!"

CHORUS

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to the Hood!
You always kept your promise, just because you said you would.
No matter the situation, you tried the best you could.
You trusted in Jesus just because He said you should.
Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to the Hood!

The time you spent upon the earth wasn't focused on yourself,
You were always giving things away, not keepin' 'em on your shelf.
Food to the hungry, drink to those with thirst.
Now you live in heaven, where the last become the first!

CHORUS

You met the needs of others, ignoring your own.
Witnessed to the down and out that they were not alone.
You never knew a stranger, helping anyone who'd ask.
You were a willing servant, regardless of the task.

CHORUS

We're all celebrating! You're now in Heaven's crew!
Check out this mansion Jesus built for you!
We're glad that you could join us for the rest of your days,
to worship God Almighty who's worthy of our praise!

CHORUS
