Do You See

Do we see with His Son's eyes?

Do we see the mommas they're on their knees crying?
Do we see our brothers on the street corners dying?
Those who stand behind the pulpit lying?
Do we see the ladies being sold as slaves?
Only value their bodies so they say let's slay
Do we see the confusion of our sexual ways?
Everything is accepted, guess that's the new wave
And are the fathers still leaving their homes?
And people get a rise out of hurting the poor?
Tired of waiting Lord, when you taking charge
We just wanna live our lives and in the end hear good job
He says that we're the answer, but we don't get it
They're banning His voice, why don't He come fix it
He put it back on us, He says we have His Spirit
But I can't see how we can make any difference
Man, it's hard to see how we can make any difference

Do you see what we see?
Do we share the same thought?
Is it hard to stand by and not turn our eye?

He gave us a heart like his
Do we shed his tears, do we ever lament?
I guess we're too distracted by our marriages
They crumble like bricks, kids scared from the split
Or is it the back and forth on
If an unborn baby is living being yet
Or maybe it's oppression, the depression got us stressing
Taking all the pills just to deal with it
They listen to the father of lies
He fuels the wars and the genocides
It's hard to even go outside
Got my hazard suit on during a date night
These days got us questioning everybody
Cough, sneeze, no mask on, threat to everybody
And we're saying, "God, go get everybody"
But we have the beautiful feet, we're His body
We have the beautiful feet, we're His body

Do you see what we see?
Do we share the same thought?
Is it hard to stand by and not turn our eye?
Are we afraid to speak out
Through all the questions and doubt?
Do we avoid it?
Can we feel it?

How the city grieves that something isn't right
Her people shun the ones they never meant to fight
What was disgraceful now is open in plain sight
Lord, how long, oh how long?

Do you see what we see?
Do we share the same thought?
Is it hard to stand by and not turn our eye?
Are we afraid to speak out
Through all the questions and doubt?
Do we avoid it?
Can we feel it?

Set Right

The Lord in His anger

What about mine?

He has His freedom

I’m doing my time

Lying here in wait

With no place to go

God has the last say

The plans that He knows

 

The world is no longer

The place we celebrate

The broken are waiting

Waiting for aid

Trying to understand

Where justice has gone

God has the last say

Oh when will He come?

I thought I thought I thought I knew

I thought I knew what to do

I thought I thought I thought I knew

I thought I knew what to do

 

When will the world be set right?

When will the world be set right?

When will the world be set right?

When will the world… be set right?

 

People cry out "Truth, liberty!"

Falling on deaf ears

As we scroll on our screens

So much hurt and anger

The wounds are too deep

But God has the last say

Will He set them free?

I thought I thought I thought I knew

I thought I knew what to do

I thought I thought I thought I knew

I thought I knew what to do

 

When will the world be set right?

When will the world be set right?

When will the world be set right?

When will the world…

 

When will the world be set right?

When will the world be set right?

When will the world be set right?

When will the world… be set right?

Well I've looked through the stained glass
And seen all the pain and despair
And I thanked You for saving my family
And friends from out there
Yet my soul was astir from the words
That I heard You say
But to put them to practice
I can't seem to find a way

Show me how
Show me how
And I hear that You're calling
I feel You are drawing me out
And I've heard all the words
But I need You to show me how

There's an anguish inside
That is growing and pride is the culprit
When there's such a divide
From the people outside and the pulpit
And I hear that You're calling
I feel You are drawing me out
And I've heard all the words
But I need You to show me how

Show me how
Show me how
And I hear that You're calling
I feel You are drawing me out
And I've heard all the words
But I need You to show me how

So take these words inside our mouths
And show us how to live them out
Take these words beneath our tongues
And give us new songs to be sung

Take these words inside our mouths
And show us how to live them out
Take these words beneath our tongues
And give us new songs to be sung

Take these words inside our mouths
And show us how to live them out
Take these words beneath our tongues
And give us new songs to be sung

Take these words inside our mouths
And show us how to live them out
Take these words beneath our tongues
And give us new songs...

Show us how
Show us how
And we hear that You're calling
We feel You are drawing us out
So show us how
Show us how
And we hear that You're calling
We feel You are drawing us out
So show us how
And we've heard all the words
But I need You to show us how
And we've heard all the words
But we need You to show us how
And we've heard all the words
But we need You to show us how
And we've heard all the words
But we need You to show us how
And I've heard all the words
But I need You to show me how
