Sample of script:

 

Trevor (with great feeling): Andrea and I would like to sing a song for you, one which speaks   clearly to us about just what it is to be a Christian.  Our prayer is that you will recognize and  be able to identify with the words in this song.

 

As duet ends Patti comes on stage, obviously overwhelmed by the words of the song.

 

Patti:  That was truly awesome!  No problem too big!  No mountain too tall!  You know,   that brings a real peace to my mind.  I have had a rough time lately, and that song    somehow seems to provide answers and assurance.  I really appreciate the way you   ministered to me through that song!

 

Trevor : Ministered?  We ministered to you? Er, that is, of course we did, didn't we Andrea?    I mean, after all that is why we were singing, wasn't it, . . I think.  

 

Patti:  When you sang that part about Jesus carrying the weight of the world on His    shoulders, I, I just realized that my problems, although overwhelming to me, are no   problem for the Lord of all creation!

 

Andrea picks up song book, looks at words, shakes head.

 

Andrea: I'm sure that isn't in the song.  After all, I mean, I would remember it if it was!

 

Trevor picks up sheet music, scans a couple of pages, smiles, points, says:  "Sure it is!  See, it's    right there!  Carry. . . . weight. . . .  .carry you.  Yep, it's all here all right.  Funny,    I've never noticed those words before.
