I want to change this NATION; I want Justice to prevail,
But in my heart Iím selfish, and in my soul Iím stale.
I want to change the system; I want to confront all wrongs,
But when I look inside me, I see an animal worst then all.
I live a life of honor; my heart is full of pride.
Whatís the worth of my neighbors! They are insects in my sight.
I say to myself in my heart, that Iím the god of my own.
What is the significance of poor! They are dust of my thongs.
I discriminate by caste; I discriminate by position,
I value the rich, and treat with contempt the broken.
I declare women to be goddess; still rape her on the road,
I exploit every bit of her, to gratify the thirst of my throat.
Lust is the prince of my mind, love I have buried aside,
I live with the heart of a stone, I have no feelings alive.
I profess to be so religious; I worship thousand gods,
Yet when it comes to bribing; I accept it with great applause.
I see the riches of this world, but I donít see the troubles of the poor.
I hear the bells of the temple, but I donít hear the cries of the inferior.
I speak to flatter people, but I donít dare to speak for a cause.
I feel the pain of my loved ones, but I donít feel the agony of rest all.
It seems SIN is my master; it reigns over my soul,
I end up therefore doing things, I intended never to perform.
Who can deliver me from this struggle! That is raging within my soul,
Since I try so hard to be good, but end up being a fool.
I realized then in my spirit, that transformation is what is required,
I need the help of someone to mend my broken life.
In the midst of all confusion, I recognized something divine,
That God stood right beside me; and watched me all the time.
So, I prayed to God in secret; Lord Transform my darkened life,
Give me the strength to fight this battle, give me the thoughts pure and divine.
In my spirit I then realized, that JESUS CHRIST has paid the price,
HE alone can be my SAVIOR for HE has given his precious life.
I then went down on my knees, and confessed my sins with a cry,
I found Godís amazing grace, and my sins were washed thereby.
The peace that transcends all understanding, descended into my mind;
Changed my life forever, and moved me from death to life.
If you want to change this NATION; you need to know the truth divine,
JESUS CHRIST is who this NATION needs; for HE can transform the hearts and mindsÖfor HE can transform the hearts & minds.
