Systems of oppression, fear and hate
Held up by a lie we can’t escape
Humanity a history of tragedy
Does it have to be the future of us all?

Hear our prayer, hear Your people
Turn our hearts to You
Make us whole again
Hear our prayer, hear Your people
Turn our hearts to You
Make us one

Violence, power, struggle fear and shame
Will the story always be the same?
Can we ever be the people
We are meant to be?
Does it have to be the future of us all?

Open our hearts so love can start
To heal the pain
Open our hearts so love can start
To heal the pain

Love shall overcome
Love shall overcome

O my God, what have we done?
What have we become?
These seeds were sown
Sown in ages past
Now we’re reaping them in full
How can we fix this?
Learn from our mistakes
How can we fix this?
Or is the mess too great?
