Verse 1:
I saw a man today
His whole world across his
Back
A living monument opposed to my
Success
I tried to look into his eyes
As he shuffled pass my car
Sweat beading on his skin, his clothes and hair a mess
As the light turned green and I pulled away
He slowly
Disappeared
Just a memory of another chance, I failed to show Your
Love here

Chorus:
I wanna love because You
Loved
I wanna give because You
Gave
I wanna reach my hand out
To the lost
Because I know Your hand
Will save
Only You can save

Verse 2:
I have to wonder if I really want to
Know
The struggle and the pain that others
Feel
Do I wanna hear the stories I see echoed in their
Eyes?
Or is this love I say that I'm reflecting even
Real?
As the light turns on inside my head and I slowly
Disappear
I still myself cuz what You call for me, is to show Your
Love here

Chorus:
I wanna love because You
Loved
I wanna give because You
Gave
I wanna reach my hand out
To the lost
Cuz I know Your hand will
Save
I wanna love just like You
Loved
I wanna give just like You
Gave
I wanna reach out with Your
Hand
Cuz only You can
Save
Only You can
Save

Bridge:
(Save)
So let me be Your
Hands
(Only You can save)
Let me be Your
Eyes
(Only You can save)
Help me understand
(Only You can save)
That I'm Your hands and feet hidden behind this frail human
Disguise

Chorus:
I wanna love because You
Loved
I wanna give because You
Gave
I wanna reach my hand out
To the lost
Cuz I know Your hand will
Save
I wanna love just like You
Loved
I wanna give just like You
Gave
I wanna reach out with Your
Hands
Cuz only You can save
Yeah, only You can save
Yeah, only You can save
Yeah, only You can save

Outro:
(Only You can save)
(Only You can save)
(Only You can save)
(Only You can save)
