All Of God's Children

  • When the things that you can't hold on to
    Are the things that you wish you could
    Are you really ready to pay for love
    If it costs you everything?

    All of God's children
    All of God's children
    Shining underneath
    Shining underneath
    I believe in a world that's beyond me
    I believe in a world I ain't seen
    Past the glass, and shotgun shacks
    Violent faceless racist facts
    I believe in a world that's made clean

    All of God's children
    All of God's children
    Shining underneath
    Shining underneath

    Underneath these wars
    Underneath these walls
    Underneath the bullet holes
    I still don't know who we are
    It's shining underneath
    Oh, I've been waiting for love to give birth
    New life to show pain its worth
    I've been waiting for peace on Earth
    Like a newborn child
    Oh, like a newborn child
    Shining underneath

    Is there a well that won't run empty?
    Is there a friend that can't be bought?
    You'll find them when you're thirsty
    Learn the lesson that can't be taught
    All of God's children
    All of God's children
    All of God's children
    Shining underneath
