Another World

This is a song I wrote recently and played today at our church. We’ve been spending time in Isaiah 40-66 and this is my summary of Isaiah’s vision.

Long ago my people went down to Egypt
Long ago they lived in slavery
Long ago my people cried out
Long ago I set them free

Another world is possible
Another world is coming
Another world is possible
Another world is here

Long ago my people came from Africa
Long ago they lived in slavery
Broken bodies and bruised souls
Long ago slaves built the land of the free

Another world is possible
Another world is coming
Another world is possible
Another world is here

I will gather the outcasts
And all those who walk in mercy
Beat your swords into plowshares
And I will bless your hand
Loose the bonds of injustice
Break the yoke of oppression
Share your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless into your homes
Then your light will break forth like the dawn

Another world is possible
Another world is coming
Another world is possible
Another world is here
