Oooo...

People say that they can change
But, they will never make arrangements
To schedule meetings with god almighty
The one and only lord up above

Why do we seek the lord when we're in danger
But when we're in riches
We act like he is just a stranger
Why do we always seem to call on him
But when we fall astray we always seem to fall back and sin

Money is the root of our evil
God won't give us what we can't handle
And how do we dig a hole deeper than you whoa
Yet still he takes away all of our problems

Why do we seek the lord when we're in danger
But when we're in riches
We act like he is just a stranger
Why do we always seem to call on him
But when we fall astray we always seem to fall back and sin

Day after day I break down in sorrow
There is no telling what promises tommorow
I'm hoping and praying my spirits never hollow
(Lord show me the way)
And I will follow

Why do we seek the lord when we're in danger
But when we're in riches
We act like he is just a stranger
Why do we always seem to call on him
But when we fall astray we always seem to fall back and sin

Soon you'll be back
And we wont be ready
The time is now and his brace is pushing steady
I ask you for guidance and simple understanding
I know your love is some naturally unfailing (whoa)

Why do we, why do we, why do we
Seek the lord when we're in danger
But when we're in riches
We act like he is just a stranger
Why do we always seem to call on him
But when we fall astray we always seem to fall back and sin

Why do we seek the lord when we're in danger
But when we're in riches
We act like he is just a stranger
Why do we always seem to call on him
But when we fall astray we always seem to fall back and sin
(Repeat 5x)

(Speaker Kiwini Vaitai)
Why do we seek the lord when we're in danger
But when we're in riches
We act like he is just a stranger
Why do we always seem to call on him
But when we fall astray we always seem to fall back and sin
