What this world needs
Is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind
Another two bit politician peddling lies
Another three ring circus society
What this world needs
Is not another sign waving super saint that's better than you
Another ear pleasing candy man afraid of the truth
Another prophet in an Armani suit

What this world needs is a Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love them in their time of need
A Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love
That's what this world needs

What this world needs
Is for us to care more about the inside than the outside
Have we become so blind that we can't see
God's gotta change her heart before He changes her shirt
What this world needs
Is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance
Blending in so well that people can't see the difference
And it's the difference that sets the world free




Jesus is our Savior, that's what this world needs
Father's arms around you, that's what this world needs
That's what this world needs

    Don't live by your itepretation of the gospel, just step back and let jesus live in you. Don't judge by apearences, and don't be afraid to be different than those around you. All this world needs is jesus, and those who have the courage to let go of their appearence to let him live through him. I think.

    "What This World Needs" is saying we don't need to have all of the exspensive shoes or Jeans, or have to be a skinny modle, not saying that wrong, but thats what you have to be!! God made each and every one of us just the way we are. We have made the Worlds standers to what we think it should be not what God wants but, what we want and what we think is wright! We are sooo Blind we can't see that the inside of our heart is what really counts. We have to stop living with Blind Eyes and and look into each others hearts and see what really counts.
    P.S. This song is turely amazing I would encourage you to listen to this song and just pray to God about it.
    God Bless
