letra de there but for the grace of god go i – paul overstreet

there’s a man on a corner with a cardboard sign that reads
i will work for food
a woman stands beside him with hungry eyes that plead
our children are hungry too
some may say i’m foolish for giving to their cause
i’ve become a believer that heaven’s helped us all

oh there but for the grace of god go i
how without comp*ssion can we p*ss them by
oh it could be you it could be me the world has cast aside
there but for the grace of god go i

when i think about my home late in the evening time
how we’ve been blessed with much more than we need
keep a warm fire burning when it’s cold outside
we don’t have to worry that we might freeze
how can i go to bed at night and sleep so gracefully
if i haven’t given something for the least of these

oh there but for the grace of god go i
how without comp*ssion can we p*ss them by
oh it could be you and it could be me the world has locked outside
there but for the grace of god go i

oh the time has come for everyone to learn to help another
we could turn this whole wide world around if we only loved each other

oh there but for the grace of god go i
how without comp*ssion can we p*ss them by
oh it could be you and it could be me the world has locked outside
there but for the grace of god go i
there but for the grace of god go i
there but for the grace of god go i
there but for the grace of god
there but for the grace of god go i
there but for the grace of god
there but for the grace of god go i
