Like the ancient Roman empire this world is goin' to fall
And it's much too bigger thing for mortal men
Just take a look around and see the writing on the wall
Somehow we've got to find a helping hand

This world has never been in the awful shape it's in
And people scorn the things our leaders do
It's time the prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus take a hold and lead us through

The mighty roar of gunfire is now a local sound
And our city streets are filled with angry men
Love is now a mockery throughout our troubled land
And destruction seems to be the current trend

This world has never been in the awful shape it's in
And our leaders seem in doubt of what to do
It's time the prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus take a hold and lead us through
Jesus take a hold and lead us through
