What This World Needs By: Casting Crowns

What this world needs is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind; another two bit politician peddling lies;
another three ring circus society.
What this world needs is not another sign waving super saint that's better than you;
another ear pleasing candy man afraid of the truth;
another prophet in an Armani suit.


What this world needs is a Savior who will rescue,
a Spirit who will lead,
a Father who will love them in their time of need.
A Savior who will rescue,
a Spirit who will lead,
a Father who will love.
That's what this world needs.


What this world needs is for us to care more about the inside than the outside; have we become so blind that we can't see;
God's gotta change her heart before He changes her shirt.
What this world needs is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance;
blending in so well that people can't see the difference;
and it's the difference that sets the world free.


People aren't confused by the Gospel, they are confused by us.
Jesus is the only way to God, but we are not the only way to Jesus.
This world doesn't need my tie, my hoodie, my denomination,
or my translation of the Bible.
They just need Jesus!
We can be passionate about what we believe,
but we can't strap ourselves to the Gospel,
because we are slowing it down.
Jesus is going to save the world;
but maybe the best thing we can do
is just get out of the way.


Jesus is our Savior, that's what this world needs! Father's arms around you, that's what this world needs! That's what this world needs.
