This song is from his album "Into The Light".
Never have I been so inspired by a simple song. This song has the power of a dynamite. When the song started, I felt something special about it, it might be because of the synth arpeggio or something, but it really caught my attention. Then came the part where God says, "I did, I created you", that's when everything hit me. Those 5 words have absolutely changed my view point. I know this is not some rocket science that you are listening to, but when you listen to the whole song, you will understand the importance of our role in this world. To bring peace to the world and to bring more and more people to the Lord Jesus Christ. I wish I could keep on writing about the Lord. Write in the comment section below of how he has worked wonders for you. Let everyone read it and be strengthened

Scale: E Major Time Signature: 4/4 Tempo: 106 INTRO E E I woke up this morning E Saw a world full of trouble now E Thought, how’d we ever get so far down E How’s it ever gonna turn around A So I turned my eyes to Heaven A E I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?” E Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of E People living in poverty E Children sold into slavery E The thought disgusted me A So, I shook my fist at Heaven A E Said, “God, why don’t You do something?” E F#m A E He said, “I did, I created you” [CHORUS] E If not us, then who E If not me and you A E Right now, it’s time for us to do something E If not now, then when E Will we see an end A To all this pain A C#m A It’s not enough to do nothing E It’s time for us to do something E I’m so tired of talking E About how we are God’s hands and feet E But it’s easier to say than to be E A Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves A E It’s alright, “somebody else will do something” E Well, I don’t know about you E But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire E I don’t want a flame, I want a fire A I wanna be the one who stands up and says, A E “I’m gonna do something” [CHORUS] E If not us, then who E If not me and you A E Right now, it’s time for us to do something E If not now, then when E Will we see an end A To all this pain A C#m A It’s not enough to do nothing E It’s time for us to do something [BRIDGE] C#m A We are the salt of the earth A E We are a city on a hill (shine shine, shine shine) C#m A But we’re never gonna change the world B By standing still B No we won’t stand still [CHORUS] E If not us, then who E If not me and you A E Right now, it’s time for us to do something E If not now, then when E Will we see an end A To all this pain A C#m A It’s not enough to do nothing E It’s time for us to do something
