People Need The Lord

[TFWS #2244] by Greg Nelson and Phill McHugh

Verse Order: V1, C, V2, C×2

Verse 1
Ev’ryday 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 the silent cries
Only Jesus hears

Chorus 1
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

Verse 2
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
