Here's an upbeat tune from my friend Peter Gringhuis of the Netherlands.
Watcha Gonna Do? Music by Peter Gringhuis Words by Larry Holder Copyright (C) 2009 Peter Gringhuis and Larry Holder So you're big and bad, got the money and the bling And you've reached the world of fame Everyone's your friend, hanging on your ev'ry word And they're calling our name. Party through the night, got your women and your booze As you chase the world of sin Until the walls start crashin' in. Watcha gonna do when the darkness comes And you find you've lost your way? Watcha gonna do when the bread is gone And you've still got bills to pay? When you hit the ground, there is not a friend around Like a moth, they chase the flame While you turn to face your wall of shame. [chorus 1] When you reach the end of who you are And no one knows your name When the world has closed its doors to you You'll know it's time to play a diff'rent game! So, watcha gonna do when you've reached the end And there's no one else around? Let me tell you, friend, there is still a ray of hope And salvation can be found. Don't you know the Lord has been calling out your name You couldn't hear him for so long In Him, you'll sing a diff'rent song. Watcha gonna do when you realize That it's time to turn for home? Rest assured, my friend that the Lord is waiting there And you need not be alone. Jesus Christ is real, and He knows just how you feel For He walked this earth you trod. Surrender to the love of God. [chorus 2] When you reach the end of who you are And you turn to God above You will find what you've been missing, friend: His mercy, grace, His peace, and His love!
