A note from Marsha -
Words and Music by Marsha Jean Moor-Charles; Arranged and Adapted by Chuck Bell
Look all around – so much hurt and despair
Clouding our vision – we can’t see you there;
Division takes over and keeps us apart
Come into our lives – we need a fresh start
For we need your hope
we need your joy
You came to our world with your light to shine bright
When the darkness hides from our view
How we need your love
we need your peace
Bind us together—unite us as one
Open our minds
Open our hearts
Open our eyes
To see the light of you
Help us to see that you love us the same
No matter our journey, you call us by name
Though we are different in so many ways
Help us accept one another and teach us to pray
In our darkest hour
Heavenly light you give
Help us to look to you
Show us how to live
This live recorded version by a community choir in Lexington, KY is a slight adaptation from the original arrangement, but still gives a nice representation of the piece overall.
