God Bless The World

GOD BLESS THE WORLD 
(Siedah Garrett, Michael Herring)
“In light of today’s world events, I wanted to write a universal song that captured the spirit of ‘God Bless America.’ I am moved by the message in that song, but I also believe that God blesses the whole world.”
I finally found sleep but I don’t know how
My poor soul was cryin’ out loud, and
I couldn’t drown it out ‘cause the song was so sweet
The melody of love to the rhythm of peace, yeah

We’re only human but we can’t deny
All God’s children need prayer sometimes and, um
I know he loves us all in the very same way
And that’s the prayer I’ve been prayin’
Every night and day, I say…

God Bless the world, yeah, God bless us one and all
Everyone, not just us
But for every woman, man, boy and girl
Bless the world

The daily headlines, a little more rope
Every commentary, another lost hope and
I just refuse to hate what I know we can change
I’m stayin’ open to the hope in every moment of grace

We’re only human, but still divine
With no excuses for the hatred I find
Love is the greatest gift we could give and receive
Instead of fighting I’m inviting a universal peace

God Bless the world, yeah, God bless us one and all
Everyone, not just us
But for every woman, man, boy and girl
Bless the world

The time is right for love
And there’s no room for hate
We all can live as one
And I know what it’s gonna take
