We've seen mothers bury sons
and we're begging you to come, oh

the broken fill our towns
and the hopeless shout aloud, oh

We cannot wait
we cannot wait
oh, we cannot wait

when the poor are thrown aside
the sick are left to die, oh

We need your grace, oh God
your grace, oh God
we need your grace

We cannot wait, oh God
(on) your grace, oh God
we need your grace



You are here, your kingdom come
rescue us from all we've done
help us move and be the love
save us now from all we've done
we've seen mothers bury sons
we are begging you to come
we are begging you to come
oh, God, come

You are here, your kingdom come
rescue us from all we've done
help us move and be the love
save us now from all we've done
we've seen mothers bury sons
we've seen mothers bury sons
we are begging you to come
oh, God, come

We need your grace, oh God
your grace, oh God
we need your grace

and we cannot wait, oh God
your grace, oh God
we need your grace

sing, oh
