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.

(instrumental)

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 and we can't take much more.
Do you sometimes forget what it was you created us for.
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, love is the answer - so light up our way, dear God.
