"CRY OF A CONTINENT"

Verse 1
How many times do we fight our needless wars?
Why does sorrow keep knocking at our door?
Why can't we see one another for who we are?
We've all got feelings, after all, whether near or far.

Chorus
We've gotta save our people, our continent, our land,
Gotta save our morals, the peace for which we stand.
Live by love, live in truth, live for peace,
Build on kindness, help love increase.

Verse 2
Aren't you just like me? You've got a mother, as I've got a brother.
You've got feelings to your name; that makes us the same.
Sorrow begins with me when I refuse to see
That there are those that love you, as I could too.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
How many times do we take what wasn't meant to be ours,
Mistreating human lives in abusing our powers,
Taking chances at the cost of another's dream.
I'm crying out for help from the God supreme.

Bridge
If we could all hear what He has to say,
We'd hear Him saying, "Love is the way".

Chorus
God can save our people, our continent, our land;
God can save our morals, the peace for which we stand
If we live by love, live in truth, live for peace,
Build on kindness, help love increase.

Chorus
Save our people, our continent, our land.
God can save our morals, the peace for which we stand
If we live by love, live in truth, live for peace,
Build on kindness, help love increase.
