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

CHORUS:
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

CHORUS

(Dialogue)

CHORUS

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

    My meaning: dear heart, do you own me or do i own you? We need to stop this now because jesus is the only one who can save us.

    This world needs people who look inward not outward. Fix yourselves before you try to fix others! The king painted us, it is not the other way around. :)

    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.
