Dear God, I want to go to Africa…

You lived among the least of these
The weary and the weak
And it would be a tragedy for me to turn away.

All my needs You have supplied.
When I was dead You gave me life.
How could I not give it away so freely?

And I`ll follow You into the homes that are broken.
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy, God.
Follow You into the world.

Use my hands use my feet
To make Your kingdom come
Through the corners of the earth
Until Your work is done
`Cause faith without works is dead
And on the cross Your blood was shed
So how could I not give it away so freely?

And I`ll follow You into the homes that are broken.
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy, God.
Follow You into the world.

I give all myself.
I give all myself
I give all myself to You.

And I give all myself.
Yes I give all myself.
And I give all myself to You.

And I`ll follow You into the homes that are broken
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy, God.
Follow You into the world.
