Not Too Far From Here

 

 “Somebody’s down to their last dime;

Somebody’s running out of time

Not too far from here.

Somebody’s got nowhere else to go;

Somebody needs a little hope

Not too far from here.

 

And I may not know their name,

But I'm praying just the same

That You'll use me, Lord, to wipe away a tear.

'Cause somebody's crying not too far from here.

 

Somebody's troubled and confused;

Somebody's got nothing left to lose

Not too far from here.

Somebody's forgotten how to trust

And somebody's dying for love

Not to far from here

 

It may be a stranger's face,

But I'm praying for your grace.

To move in me and take away the fear

'Cause somebody's hurting

Not too far here.

 

Help me, Lord, not to turn away from pain.

Help me not to rest while those around me weep.

Give me Your strength and compassion

When somebody finds the road of life too steep.

 

Somebody’s never heard of You,

Somebody’s searching for the Truth,

Not too far from here.

Somebody wants to hear you speak

And somebody’s ready to believe

Not too far from here.”

 

Now I'm letting down my guard

And I'm opening my heart.

Help me to speak Your love to ev'ry needy ear.

Jesus is waiting not too far from here.

Oh, Jesus is waiting not too far from here."
