Bethany G.


Everywhere


Everywhere you look there's darkness
People lusting and people lying

Everywhere you go there's sadness
People starving and people dying

People are always smiling
But never for the right reasons

People are always building
But never in the right places

Everywhere you talk there's someone listening
People laughing and people criticizing

But everywhere you are there's Jesus
He's bringing light and he's giving hope

He stays with you in your heart
He's always by your side
He's the reason I'm alive

So don't let the 'everywhere' become who you are
Because God is hope and he is here
