If It Were You
If you were lost in the darkness and night,
with no one to show you the way.
Wouldn’t you want someone to send you the light,
And wouldn’t you want it today?
If sinking in evil traditions,
you were bound by what you believed.
Helpless and hopeless, Oh wouldn’t you want
a chance at least to be freed?
Would you want them to wait while they build a new homes,
and paid for a still better car.
Or while making the home base an elegant place,
before sending the message afar?
Would you want them to wait and table their plans
to expand on missions this year?
Because of the problems around the world
and the days of uncertainty here.
Would you want someone to send you the light
if you were dying and lost?
Oh I know that your answer would ring through the gloom,
please send it at any cost!
So let’s send out the message to the millions in need
that we might show them the way.
For if it were you who were dying and lost, you’d want it, and want it today!
