Bring Him Back (I stand by Manchester)

It would seem that terrorist attacks are becoming the new normal which is a very sad state of affairs. I wrote this after learning of the bombing in London and my heart grieves for all the innocent lives that will change forever. A few days later there was a terroist attack in Scarborough, Ont a place were I was born and raised and it really it home. It was only one person with a knife and hammer that was quickly apprehended but I know there will be more. If we want the world to change we have to become a body that loves each other and we can’t do that alone we need the Lord to lead us. So many times I hear people say there is no God, if there was a God he would not allow this to happen, He would stop it before anyone else was killed. Well if I am being honest the Lord is always with us. It is we who walked away from the Lord a long time ago. We stop praying in schools, we have abandon the church, we can’t speak his name in the workplace etc. If we are going to exact any real change we are going to have to go to the Lord and call out for him to help. We need to start putting him back into all the institutions we have banned him from. How do we start that change we need to welcome back to are homes and heart and watch what he can do.

Bring Him Back (I stand for Manchester)

I turn on the news and a shiver runs down my spine

Because I know this world is running out of  time

I hear of the bombings, shootings killings it fills me with fear and dread

How long is it gonna be till someone I  know and love  just turns up dead

Will it be my mother, father,sister, brother, friend, sometimes all I  can see is  the Rain

There are so many others, that feel all alone, can we  reach out to them and end the pain

 

So I am Calling out to all the people not just the one’s in the pews underneath the steeples

Lets  us all rise together and write another sequel

Never mind just calling down the angels we need the Lord in this place

To  spread love  in our hearts so we can let this world taste His Great Glorious Grace

Because fear and anger always breeds hate

And the Good Lord God said all we need is Faith

Won’t you lift your voice and help us find a way

To bring the Lord with  His Hope,Love Forgiveness  back to this place

 

This world is so full of anger,Prejudice,discrimination,hurt,pain and greed

How long is it going to take till we all learn, that being somebody is not what we need

Money, fame and all the trappings, will never fill a heart that is empty,hurt and damaged

Only the Lord’s love living through us could fill that kind of famine

I think what we need is a new perspective, a change of heart that brings about redemption

We all need to practice what we preach, hold back and turn the other cheek, to help ease the tension

 

So I am Calling out to all the people not just the one’s in the pews underneath the steeples

Lets  us all rise together and write another sequel

Never mind just calling down the angels we need the Lord in this place

To  spread love in our hearts so we can let this world taste His Great Glorious Grace

Because fear and anger always breeds hate

And the Good Lord God said all we need is Faith

Won’t you lift up your  hands lift up your voice and help us find a way

To bring the Lord with  His Hope, Love,Forgiveness  back to this place

 

So many in this world don’t have enough to eat they don’t even have shoes upon their feet

Can you look deep and find away to give a little help to fill the need

There are so many fighting chronic illness and disease ,that tries to take their lives,

it robs them of their beauty, but  those that know the Lord are still so  full of light

But what of the others where life is a misery, can you take their hand and give them hope, to get them through the night

There are so many  people who never got the love the  Good Lord intended that has left them cold and mean

They have suffered abuse in varying degrees, seen things so obscene, will we let them lean on you and me

 

So I am Calling out to all the people not just the one’s in the pews underneath the steeples

Lets  us all rise together and write another sequel

Never mind just calling down the angels we need the Lord in this place

To  spread love  in our hearts so we can let this world taste His Great Glorious Grace

Because fear and anger always breeds hate

And the Good Lord God said all we need is faith

Won’t you lift your hands, lift up  your voice and help us find a way

To bring the Lord with  His Hope Love Forgiveness back to this place

 

The Good Lord said they would know us by our love, if  evil looked at us could they really tell

The people of this world stand one step away, from surrender ,to heaven or to  hell

In the end we only get one chance to stand for good and we can’t do it alone,so don’t be thrown

The Lord can take our broken hearts and put us back in line and help us grow

He brings beauty from the ashes and victory from defeat

Lay down your burdens and look up in faith, because earth knows no sorrow that Heaven can’t render obsolete

 

So I am Calling out to all the people not just the one’s in the pews underneath the steeples

Lets  us all rise together and write another sequel

Never mind just calling down the angels we need the Lord in this place

To  spread love  in our hearts so we can let this world taste His Great Glorious Grace

Because fear and anger always breeds hate

And the Good Lord God said all we need is Faith

Won’t you lift your hands lift up your voice and help us find a way

To bring the Lord with  His Hope ,Love, Forgiveness  back to this place

Bring the Lord back to this place

Oh Lets call  out to the Lord, and bring Him back to this place
