about

I started writing this a few weeks ago and it just seems to be a significant song for what is happening in Haiti right now. Proceeds will go to Christian Haitian Outreach and our family outreach with YWAM this summer to the poor of Costa Rica. Special thanks to Brooklynne Levasa for her awesome vocal on this tune!

lyrics

I won't look back
Somewhere in the future
With regret
Over how I'm living now
Starting today
I will change the way I'm living
If the way I'm living
Could change the world somehow

If I can touch one life today
Make this world a better place
If I can reach my hand
To help somebody stand
Think what that would mean

If I could live beyond myself
See the need of someone else
If you would join with me
Together we could bring
Some hope into this world

Each one of us
Has an obligation
We've been blessed
Blessings we should be
We are called
From every generation
We are called
To live what we believe

If I can touch one life today
Make this world a better place
If I can reach my hand
To help somebody stand
Think what that would mean

If I could live beyond myself
See the need of someone else
If you would join with me
Together we could bring
Some hope into this world

Carry water to the ones who are thirsty
Carry the burdens of the weary and weak
Carry the cause of the ones forgotten
Carry hope to the least of these

Hope, hope, hope, hope to the world
Hope, hope, hope, hope to the world

If I could live beyond myself
See the need of someone else
If you would join with me
Together we could bring
Some hope into the world
Some hope into the world

If you would join with me
Together we could bring
Some hope into the world
