Power in the world
Hurts and maims man’s soul
Look around at centuries
Where power’s story is told

This power is a mimic
Of God’s creative love
Yet worldly power destroys
People and God’s love

Look at the hurting
Ignored by the rich
Wealth creates blindness
To the lame and the sick

Reach up with your dollars
Put them in a safe
Every day you save them
Evil is having its way

Put those dollars in action
Give them to Christ’s work
Reach the lost for Jesus
See God’s power at work

How can I have power?
Bend my knee to Christ
Rejoice in my privilege
To be where God calls me
