With Heart And Hand


This is a suite by Kenneth Smith featuring 'They Need Christ' from Man Mark II

Played here by Concord Salvation Army Band

THERE are people hurting in the world out there.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
There are children crying and no one to care.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
And they’ll go on hurting in the world out there
, And they’ll go on dying, drowning in despair,
And they’ll go on crying, that’s unless we care!
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.

2 There are people living who would rather die.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
And their Christian neighbours simply pass them by!
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
There are people sitting by a silent phone,
People cold and hungry, people left alone,
Suicides for reasons that remain unknown.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.

3 There’s the prostitute, and there’s the pris’ner too.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
There’s the skid row fella who won’t look at you.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
The compulsive gambler dreaming of his yacht,
And the lad that’s stealing just to get his ‘shot’,
And the girl that’s pregnant and pretends she’s not.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.

4 There are runaways who want a place to go.
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
There are alcoholics who don’t seem to know…
They need you, they need me, they need Christ.
There are godless people who have lost their way,
And they need God’s love but they’re afraid to say.
If we close our eyes perhaps they’ll go away
Without you, without me, without Christ
