lyrics

Verse 1: (Kazakhstan)

I still see it / The faces of the people so visibly
Still feel their spirits like their hearts beat and live in me
Still hear the laughter of the children and it's lifted me
To a pure place of joy / That's God's gift to me
Still taste the tears as I left each year
We're oceans apart but still they feel so near
It appears over here that we are that far
But I still smell the land like it's in my backyard
Three summers / I'm continuing to keep that heart
I saw the growth of a community in love and in unity
I thank God for those blessed opportunities
To minister to sinners who are no different than you and me
I saw the lost found
I saw their hearts being mended / Intervention when the message of the cross sounds
I saw the hope of a nation in everyone
And realized there are greater things to come
There's more to be done


Verse 2: (Bay Area)

I see the city in the night time / I see the lights shine
At the heart of it I wonder what I might find
A city hardened by deceit / Pain flowing through the streets
And defeat lingers / Making all their sight blind
So many homeless / Living with no family
Aloneness / Insanity / Financially in a tight bind
Drug addicts and gang bangers that go at it
So tragically dark / God, come and let Your light shine!
The bay area's sort of a grey area
With so much passion to witnessed a saved area
But at the same time / So many that carry a
Burden too heavy to hold / Are we ready to mold
A generation of passionate prayer warriors
To march through the land and declare God victorious?
I saw the hope of a city in everyone
And realized there are greater things to come
There's more to be done


Verse 3: (North Korea)

I see a land that's corrupted by deception
Misguided perception / And severed connection from the world
Where so little is seen and little is heard
National propaganda that screams protection assured
But so many that suffer agony / Poverty stricken
Living in the worst of conditions / These women and children
Families are living on streets
Desperate for money so they sell human carcasses as chicken and beef
A starving nation / Not only for physical food
But for hope that arises with spiritual truths
In a land full of prisons and oppression / Spiritual depression
We need Your divine intervention
And Your peace that would flow in like a river
This problem is big / But we believe that You are BIGGER!
I saw the hope of a nation in everyone
And realized there are greater things to come
There's more to be done
