"Face at the Window" was an effort to write a gospel type song that does not veer into overt, pedantic, oxymoronic Christian Rock, which I usually find unmusical and uninviting.

Like Sailboat, When the Spirit Says Go I Go, and some other singalong songs of mine, Face at the Window was inspired by seeing Ella Jenkins in concert when I was a kid and listening to her wonderful LP record You Sing A Song and I'll Sing A Song.

Lyrics:

Get on board the train at the station,
train at the station,
train at the station,
if you wanna get to heaven better get on board

Get out now the fire is a-comin',
fire is a-comin',
fire is a-comin',
if you wanna get to heaven better get out now

Pray to God and God may save ya,
God may save ya,
God may save ya,
if you wanna get to heaven better pray to God

Stay up late and laugh with the shadows,
laugh with the shadows,
laugh with the shadows,
if you wanna get to heaven better stay up late

Don't trust men who scoff at the bible,
scoff at the shadows,
scoff at the fire,
if you wanna get to heaven better don't trust men

Watch out for the face at the window,
face at the window,
face at the window,
if you wanna get to heaven better

Watch out for the face at the window,
face at the window,
face at the window,
if you wanna get to heaven better get on board
