Beyond the distant shores
I hear the silent cry
Of people torn apart by wars
Starving children left to die
Destitute in darkening fear
Fathers pray their desperate prayers
For the gods to finally hear
To send someone who really cares
Who will go where I would go?
Who will feed their hungry souls?
Be still and know that I am God
When darkness comes in like a flood
Be still and know; find rest in Me
The Light eternal
Child of God and child of men
Will you hear Me when I call
Or will you close your eyes again
And let My words on deaf ears fall?
You are called to be like Me
To bring to life the barren lands
Destined for eternity
So be My hope, be My hands
Will you be who I will be
Will you set the captives free?
