Don't You Talk That Way

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album That I May Know You (2005).

Now, once a man who'd lived his life in blindness
Was healed as Jesus Christ was passing by
He sent him to the waters of Siloam
To wash the clay he'd placed upon his eyes

When the Pharisees demanded how it happened
He told them, Jesus made this clay, and now I see
When they call the Lord a filthy, evil sinner
The man stood up and said this cannot be

And don't you talk that way about my healer
The things you say, you just cannot defend
Don't you talk that way about my saviour
Don't you talk that way about my friend

Now, once I did not have the things I needed
And I asked someone to join with me and pray
But instead of going with me to the Father
He told me words that darkened down the day
He said, God is far above the things you long for
So just put to death those things you think you need
For there will be no answer to your calling
Only greater men than you will heaven heed

And I said, Don't you talk that way about my Father
He cares for every little bird that flies
Don't you talk that way about my saviour
Even I am Jesus' brother in his eyes

Now the news is full of terror and destruction
And I hear people on their platforms all around
Sayin' it's God who's judged the evils of the nations
With tsunamis and those towers crashin' down

When I think of Jesus' love and his compassion
And his death that paid for all our sin and shame
Somethin' deep inside rsepons in anger
'Cause I know they're tellin' lies in Jesus' name

And I say, Don't you talk that way about my Father
Evil one's the only one to blame
Don't you talk that way about my saviour
Don't try to put that stuff on Jesus' name

Don't you talk that way about my Father
There's things you say, you just cannot defend
Don't you talk that way about my saviour
Don't you talk that way about my friend
No, don't you talk that way about my friend
