Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eye.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?
On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize --people need the Lord?
We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What would be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who's lost?
Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.
People need the Lord.

    People need a savior. They need deliverance from drug abuse, alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, prison. You name it. The solution to the sin problem is the lord jesus christ.

    We were created by God, with the need for God to reign first and foremost in our life. Many try to replace that void with wealth, fame, possessions, earthly relationships, worldly interest etc but we will never experience real joy, contentment or become whole until we allow the Lord to have that rightful position and reign supreme in our lives.

    We need to open our eyes and see that people need what we have! It should be the outreach mantra for every christian.

    The lord jesus christ gave himself on the cross to save man. Everyone
    Must acknowledge him as his lord and savior to have eternal life.
