It wants to be god
To declare the way
People should live
How they should pay

In its wake is poverty
Hate and evil rule the day
Only a few have their way
The rest of us will starve

The world condemns Jesus
Because He is King
The Holy One who came
And died for me

Christ is Lord
And Lord of all
Eternal love
He will not fall

The world is dying
Every day
Overrun by ignorance
From foolish man

The world divides everyone
The rich and poor
The hungry ones
And breaks each man’s heart

The helpless are killed
The wealthy won’t live
The world builds a place
That no one leaves alive

Death and destruction
Both hold sway
Without Jesus
There will be no new day.
