4him – Couldn't We Stand lyrics

You hear the people talkin'
They say they're takin a stand
They're lookin' for
A cause they can believe in
For the welfare of man
But all I see are soldiers in a circle
Marching no place fast
Isn't it time the children of God
Take a stand that will last
Oh it makes me want to ask

Couldn't we stand to kneel a little longer
The time is never spent in vain
In the light of all we stand to gain
Finding the faith that only makes us stronger
Touching what we cannot see
Reaching to heaven from our knees
Couldn't we stand

I know men
So blinded by ambition
The joy is slippin' away
But they're no worse
Than the people who are livin'
Like there's only today
And I can't help but shake my head and wonder
What's it comin' to
Lord, give me the strength to lift them in prayer
'Cause it's all I can do
Just to give them back to you
