Steven Curtis Chapman – Who Cares lyrics

[Verse 1]
Trapped in simple conversation
Hard getting past those old familiar lines
Guarded hearts and with good reason
Say how are you, oh I'm doing just fine
They've said all that they can say
Then they turn and walk away
And the wounded hearts must wait another day

Who cares when they're crying
Who cares when they're all alone
And no one knows how much they long
To find someone
Who cares that they're dying
Who cares that the road is long
And you could be the one to lead them
To the One who cares

[Verse 2]
Captured by the rush of living
So hard to hear our brothers' quiet cries
But freedom comes when we are willing
To open up our hearts and realize
They've said all that they can say
We can't turn and walk away
'Cause the wounded hearts might not wait another day


The Father gave His Son
To show the world how much He cares
And now it's up to us to let them know
He cares.

    Truth be told, you can't really make yourself care for every face you see today. As noble of a goal as that may be, you just can't really sympathize with every frowning face. But this song doesn't ask you to do that. And neither does Jesus.

    What you can do for the people you meet today is introduce them to someone who does care. Who, no matter where they're coming from or what they're running from, knows what they're going through and knows what they need. The only person able to do that is Jesus.

    Life is meaningless without God. So many people live their lives looking for something else that will fulfill them, but they never really succeed. And so they go on hopelessly existing and wondering why they're trying to survive. Some of them don't even do that, which explains a lot of suicides. While you can't personally create a custom-tailored plan for fulfillment for every human being, God can. So the best thing you can do is lead people to Him.
