and the problem is this
we were bought with a kiss
but the cheek still turned
even when it wasn't hit
and i don't know
what to do with a love like that
and i don't know
how to be a love like that

when all the love in the world
is right here among us and hatred too
so we must choose what our hands will do

where there is pain
let there be grace
where there is suffering
bring serenity
for those afraid
help them be brave
where there is misery
bring expectancy

and surely we can change
surely we can change
something

and the problem it seems
is with you and me
not the love who came
to repair everything
and i don't know
what to do with a love like that
and i don't know
how to be a love like that

when all the love in the world
is right here among us and hatred too
so we must choose what our hands will do

where there is pain
let us bring grace
where there is suffering
bring serenity
for those afraid
let us be brave
where there is misery
let us bring them relief

and surely we can change
surely we can change
surely we can change
something

oh the world's about to change
the whole world's about to change
the whole world's about to change
the whole world's about to change
the whole world's about to change
the whole world's about to change

    General CommentOne of my more favorite songs my Crowder. His message is conveyed so simply through his words. It reminds me of the Prayer of St. Francis.
