If I could. . .
Cause troubled hearts to yearn
for better ways to live and learn
To fill the voids that keep them choosing
all thatís wrong and leads to losing
. . .then the radiance of joy could shine

If I could. . .
Stop abuse of every sort
Bring justice back into our courts
End hunger, wars and desecration
of Godís commands throughout each nation
. . .then ripples of love would flood the world

If I could. . .
Always know which words to speak
or when itís just an ear one seeks
Feel His presence through every trial,
even when Iím in denial
. . .then wisdom would be mine

If I could. . .
Soothe away each sorrowed cry
that wails in deserts dark and dry
And write for each the perfect song
to give them purpose to carry on
. . .then peace could lift their burdens

Since I canít. . .
Faith helps me trust and fully depend
upon Jesus, my Redeemer Friend
Who can heal their wounds from every battle
He is the void that in them rattles
Iíll say, ďCall to Jesus--trust, believe it
His precious love is yours, receive itĒ
. . .then Christ will be their gain
