Lyrics

TAKE THE CITY

You walk the streets alone at night
And people think you?re looking for a fight
You lock your doors and your windows tight
But still your sleep is filled with fright
You know folks are scared in the city

Every day you?re in this land
You take your life into your hands
Will the Church just run away?
Or will they stay to work and pray?
Is Jesus scared of the city?

Jesus said to take a stand
Go by faith and possess the land
Feed the poor in Jesus name
Tell the lost, the blind and lame
That Jesus loves the city

Go take, go take the city
