Judy Rogers

This Judy Rogers song is a strong warning to us all:

Angelface

Amy's out to have a good time
Even though her conscience burns
More and more she leaves behind her all the wisdom she has learned
Now she's running with the wrong crowd
All the wrong times, the wrong place
But she gets up Sunday morning
She puts on her angelface

Angelface, you cannot serve two masters
Angelface, the world will leave you cold and alone
Angelface, you're headed for disaster!
Can't you hear your Father callin', "Angelface come back home."

Amy's got it down to a science
She has everybody fooled
All her teachers and her parents think she's still "Miss Sunday School"
Can't she see her soul's in danger
Satan's out to make her fall
Kiss the Son before He's angered
You can't fool the Lord of all!

Angelface, you cannot serve two masters
Angelface, the world will leave you cold and alone
Angelface, you're headed for disaster!
Can't you hear your Father callin', "Angelface come back home."

Amy's headed down the highway
With destruction at the end
Blinded to the warning signals
Amy really needs a friend
Maybe someone cares about her
Cares enough to shine the light
Show her it's no game she's playin'
It's the evil one she fights

Angelface, you cannot serve two masters
Angelface, the world will leave you cold and alone
Angelface, you're headed for disaster!
Can't you hear your Father callin', "Angelface, come back home."

"Come back home…
(Spoken)…come back home."

And this one reminds me everyday that kids can understand Truth and praise the Lord.
Out of the Mouths of Children

Out of the mouths of children and tiny nursing babes
From the lips of the little ones, God has ordained His praise!
He has ordained His praise because of His enemies
Lord, give our children a heart to know You
Let their song silence the foe!

Oh, Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
When I consider your heavens…the work of Your hands, what is man that you care for him?
(Sung by children) You made man a little lower than the angels
Put all things under his feet
Made him ruler over all of Your creation
His children Your foes to defeat.

Out of the mouths of children and tiny nursing babes
From the lips of the little ones, God has ordained His praise!
He has ordained His praise because of His enemies
Lord, give our children a heart to know You
Let their song silence the foe!

When children came to Jesus, shouting "Hosanna!" and bringing their praise…Hosanna!
The priests indignantly tried to send them away, but Jesus said, "Have you not read?"
(Sung by children) Out of the mouths of children and tiny nursing babes
From the lips of the little ones, God has ordained His praise!
He has ordained His praise because of His enemies

Lord, give our children a heart to know You
Let their song silence the foe!
Lord, give our children a heart to know You
Let their song silence the foe!

(Sung by children) "Hosanna, Hosanna, our praises we bring to Jesus, our Prophet, our Priest and our King!"

This YouTube thing leaves out some of the words, but it gives the tune at least.  Lovely.
