Dear God Lyrics

by Elton John

Dear God, are you there?
Can you hear me, do you care?
Dear God, here are we
Less than perfect, far from free

Oh, we take what we get
And we don't take no more
But we sometimes forget
What it was you created us for

Dear God, now's the time
If you're listening, show some sign
Dear God, hear me plead
Don't desert us in our need

Oh, we take what we get
And we don't take no more
But we sometimes forget
What it was you created us for

Dear God, lend a hand
Is this really what you planned?
Dear God, in you we trust
Though we've failed you, don't fail us

Oh, we take what we get
But we can't take much more
Do you sometimes forget
What it was you created us for, dear God?

Dear God, I hope and pray you'll lead us to a brighter day
Out of the darkness and light up our way
Dear God, I hope and pray you'll lead us to a better way
Love is the answer so light up our way
Dear God, light up our way, dear God, dear God, dear God
Love is the answer so light up our way, dear God
