Lord, you gotta stop
Take a look at your children
Who believe in this promised land.
Have mercy, Lord
Stop their suffering and their woe.
Stop, shine Your light on these children
Who have faith in Your guiding hand.
Take a look at the children
At the children
Who believe in this promised land
You gotta have mercy, Lord,
Have mercy, Lord
Give us strength
So that we can grow.
