In a world of winners and losers,
Some are userd, some are the users;
It's a push and shove race
Of trying to get ahead.
In the dust of all the confusion
We make a choice, Truth or illusion;
Will we listen to lies,
Or hear what the Father says.
We are running in a human race,
Where nobody wants to settle for second place;
But we've got to run it at a different pace,
'Cause the first will be last
and the last will be first
At the end of the human race.
In a day when values are changing,
What kind of ground are we really gaining;
Who are we trying to serve by
going the extra mile.
We can't trade the Truth for the fashion;
We've got to live a life of compassion,
And those we touch are the prize
That waits at the finish line.
We are running in the human race;
We must run it at a different pace,
'Cause we'll all meet the Father face to face
At the finish line of the human race. (2x)
