People Need The Lord

Album: Steve Green (1984)
  • Everyday they pass me by
    I can see it in their eyes
    Empty people filled with care
    Headed who knows where

    On they go through private pain
    Living fear to fear
    Laughter hides their silent cries
    Only Jesus hears

    People need the Lord, people need the Lord
    At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door
    People need the Lord, people need the Lord
    When will we realize people need the Lord?

    We are called to take His light
    To a world where wrong seems right
    What could be too great a cost
    For sharing life with one who's lost?

    Through His love our hearts can feel
    All the grief they bear
    They must hear the words of life
    Only we can share

    People need the Lord, people need the Lord
    At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door
    People need the Lord, people need the Lord
    When will we realize that we must give our lives?
    For people need the Lord, people need the Lord
