And Rescue Like You Have Saved…


OTHERS – ISREAL HOUGHTON

I see the state of the world and it grieves me
I hear the cries of the broken from the rich and the poor
I smell the fear of disease all around me
I feel responsible now that I’ve seen

Because we all were born – to live for more than this – more than this

SO I WANT TO LOVE LIKE YOU LOVE
LOVE LIKE YOU LOVE
WANNA LOVE OTHERS
THE WAY THAT YOU LOVE ME
THE WAY YOU LOVE ME

I’ve held the children unseen
And they move me
I wonder what I can do
To improve a thousand lives

I feel the absence of love
And it scares me
I feel responsible
Now that I’ve seen

Because we all were born to live for more than this –
so much more than this

I was that lost soul that You rescued
I was the orphan You adopted and brought into Your heart
I was acquainted with the hopelessness
Of living in the streets
That was me

NOW I’M GONNA LOVE LIKE YOU LOVE
LOVE LIKE YOU LOVE

HELP ME LOVE OTHERS
THE WAY THAT YOU LOVE ME

GONNA FORGIVE LIKE YOU FORGAVE
AND RESCUE LIKE YOU HAVE SAVED
