Our World

We live in a funny world
Filled with trouble and strife
Challenging everything
In our Christian life

We know what's black and white
And there's right and wrong
It's such a turbulent world
That God seems all but gone

Caught in a whirlwind
Of uncertainty
Our God has given us
A sense of stability

The truth is written
In the words He left behind
Written centuries ago
To give sight to the blind

Fumbling around in darkness
Of humanity's sin
Bombarded by the enemy
The truth lies within

Our Saviour of our sins
Came and walked the earth
For God so loved the world
Jesus gave us His holy worth

Shout out your Saviour's name
He is the truth and the light
Our sins are forgiven
In His blood to make things right

His promise is our legacy
Unshaken is Heaven's gate
Never be defeated
It's an unshakable debate

Raise your voice and praise Him
For all your life is worth
God gave us His only son
In a baby's birth 

Embrace Him with all your heart
Our broken world needs restoration
Don't be silenced, share His love
Evangelize in your nation
