    Lyrics

    Spoken

    For every little girl and every little boy
    Whos mother and father is across the waters,
    Fighting a war that they know nothing about
    We pray for you tonight
    God help us

    Sung

    We're running out of time
    Can't waste it (can't waste it)
    Have you seen the news today?
    War is on the up rise
    He said it was to be this way
    And Lord i know that millions won't make it
    This life's all I have to live
    And I'll gladly give it
    To be one of the ones who did (thank you)

    Ever since creation
    We been counting down the time from then to now and we will see
    Nations fighting nations
    I hide the word inside my heart then i read about
    Men inventing weapons of mass destruction
    To tear us all apart
    But like the rising of the sun
    We're waiting for you to come and take us away

    Those of us who believe in you,
    Believe me when i say

    We're running out of time
    Can't waste it (have you seen it)
    Have you seen the news today?
    War is on the up rise
    He said it was to be this way
    And Lord i know that millions won't make it (but I'm so glad Jesus)
    This life's all I have to live
    And I'll gladly give it
    To be one of the ones who did

    I'm gonna hang on to you Lord
    I'm gonna stay strong for you Lord
    I'm gonna keep holdin' on
    Gonna keep holdin' on to your unchanging hand
    Back ground sings "I'll keep on holdin' on" until *

    Lord you know the plan
    That you have for me
    It's not my will
    But it's your way
    And I'm gonna follow that way
    Lord
    With a made up mind
    I'm willing to go on through
    I'm not gonna worry about what my friends might say,
    What my friends might do
    I'm gonna follow you Lord
    I'm gonna follow you Lord

    And if my daddy don't go
    If my mama, if my mama don't go
    If my sister don't go
    If my brother don't go
    I'm going, I'm going through Lord

    If my preacher don't go
    I'm going
    Oooh
    Oh Lord
    I surrender with a made up mind
    I'm goin' through
    Oooh *

    Spoken

    So father we pray right now
    That you hear our cries
    For peace, for restoration, give us hope right now
    Without you we can't make it
    We've tried and we're sorry
    But we look to the hills
    That must come with our help
    Coz we know our help comes from you
    We're gonna hold on
    Said we're gonna hold on to you
    We're not gonna let go this time father
    We're gonna trust and have faith
    The size of a mustard seed
    Bless your name father
    You're worthy
