Now hear this….

Remember this song from 1968? Read the lyrics below and have a guess at what the song is really about. I have to admit I never made the connection until now. I don’t know why the song came into my thoughts especially as it was from so many years ago. I couldn’t stop ‘listening’ to it in my thoughts so I decided there must be a reason for that. I do believe we receive messages from God that way for I have heard things like this before. Make up your own mind about such things. So I looked the song up on YouTube and discovered the lyrics were available there too. I have copied and pasted them here along with the song.

This is the captain of your ship
Your heart speaking
We’ve run into a little storm
The boat’s leaking
And if you haven’t guessed
This is an SOS
If you still love her, answer: yes (yes)
You’re going to lose a good thing

You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now

You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now

This is the captain of your ship
Your soul calling
You’d better turn yourself around
There’s no stalling
You’re running off your course
You’ve got your signals crossed
And now the compass points to love (love)
You’re going to lose a good thing

You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now
You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now
(Come on now baby)

You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now
You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now

Okay the song is directed to a young girl’s heart regarding the love of her life but when I heard it again for the first time in years I heard different words. Essentially I was hearing the message that this world is sinking and is in need of saving. The ‘Captain’ of this ship, the world, is crying out to you to come about, turn around in repentance to Him who gave you life. You have got to tell Him that you love Him. You have got to tell Him that you need Him and you have to do it right now, tomorrow it may be too late, tomorrow your boat may sink completely. Your compass needs to turn to love, the love He has for you, the love of Jesus. You are losing a good thing if you don’t.
