The Shoes We Think God Wears

A modern-day parable in song – about shoes, or is it?

Instrument: Eventide – Mainland Mahogany Concert Ukulele

1. Shoes are made for business, dressing up and going places.
Some for playing sports, heavy work, and running races.
Problems seem to come when we fray and cut the laces
Of the shoes we think God wears.
Refrain:

2. Look at all the sizes, the styles and the shapes!
And There’s demand for every shoe they make.
Yet we judge the worth and the right to display
The different shoes we think God wears.
Refrain: (Twice)

That’s why there are many parts of the One.
Every soul is God’s, and He knows the path they’re on.

Refrain:
Remember, God has more shoes than [last time: just] yours.
You can’t fill them all, of course.
That’s why there are many parts of the One.
Every soul is God’s, and He knows the path they’re on.
