Down the Back Stairs

God came for a visit
Came down the back stairs
He stepped into the kitchen
And met with us there

He talked and He listened
He cooked  up some fish
And when we were done
He help wash the dishes

God came for a visit
Came down the back road
He gathered up strangers
And carried their load

He sat on the ground
He shared out His bread
We might have been enemies
Now we’re family instead

God came for a visit
He came from backstageHe brought us eternity
An end to death’s rage

He gave us His life
He gave us His death
That we might find mercy
That we might find rest

God came for a visit
Now He asks us to come
Follow His footsteps
As we find our way home
