The Human Race Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

In a world of winners and losers, some are used, some are the users
Its a push and shove race of trying to get ahead
In the dust of all the confusion, we make a choice, truth or illusion
Will we listen to lies or hear what the Father says

We are running in a human race
Where nobody wants to settle for second place
But weve got to run it at a different pace
Cause the first will be last and the last will be first
At the end of the human race

In a day when values are changing
What kind of ground are we really gaining
Who are we trying to serve by going the extra mile
We cant trade the truth for the fashion
Weve got to live a life of compassion
And those we touch are the prize that waits at the finish line

We are running in a human race
Where nobody wants to settle for second place
But weve got to run it at a different pace
Cause the first will be last and the last will be first
At the end of the human race

We are running in the human race
We must run it at a different pace
Cause well all meet the Father face to face
At the finish line of the human race

We are running in the human race
We must run it at a different pace
Cause well all meet the Father face to face
At the finish line of the human race

We are running in a human race
Where nobody wants to settle for second place
But weve got to run it at a different pace
Cause the first will be last and the last will be first
At the end of the human race

We are running in a human race
Cause the first will be last and the last will be first
At the end of the human race
We are running in a human race
