Help Us To Love

Album: Hiding Place (2018)
  • Mmm, no
    Mmm, yeah

    There's a love so high (that you cannot get over)
    That same love's so wide (it'll take forever just to get 'round it)
    But love died somewhere
    Behind that cross you wear, you're afraid when you look at me
    That ain't real love
    Not the kind from above, hmm

    But there's a friend of mine (that stays closer than a brother)
    Oooh, love laid down his life (so why do we still fight one another?)
    All this hate I see on the TV screen
    In my country 'tis of thee
    (God help us to love) to love the way that you love me
    Hmmm, God help us to love the way that you love me, oh oh

    This world is weeping, hurting, broken and begging for change
    Oh yeah
    But still we marching, praying, dying, and things stay the same
    When will we see?
    Till everyone's free
    There'll never be peace between you and me
    God, your love is the cure
    For the rich and the poor
    God, please will you open our eyes?

    'Cause I want a love so high (that you cannot get over)
    Ooh, I want a love so wide (it'll take forever just to get 'round it)
    No, no, no, no, no
    But it don't come cheap
    It takes everything to make love more than a dream

    God help us to love (God help us to love)
    God help us to love (this world needs your love)
    We need your love (what we need now is love)
    Fill us with your love, Lord (unconditional love)
    We need your love (rain down on us, your love)
    Oh, we need your love (fill us please with your love)
    God help me to love the way that you love me Writer/s: Kirk Franklin
