Just a normal song from a normal guy about a normal God who, in His infinite wisdom, probably agrees this is all very normal.
I know that this is a song for kids, and that its intended audience is young Christian children, eager to soak up the valuable lessons about God’s grace and glory told in the wondrous and powerful metaphor of a creep in a facepaint barking like a dog. But personally, I like to believe that Jim Steiger wrote this song for ADULTS ONLY and is so frustrated that no one is hearing the sincere message of His gospel. “Hello? There’s a promise that I’m after, and it’s better than a bone? Why isn’t anyone picking up on this stuff? Don’t you adult men and women want to go to heaven?” WOOF. GET IT? You get it. (Thanks for the tip, Andy and Sylive.)
