oaxaca lyrics – saving grace

through storms and wars take me into a new place,
a world so beautiful,
a city of treasure buried beneath a sky of injustice.

i am here, but i am filled with fear.
am i ready or am i standing in naivety?
send me out.
send me out.

through storms and wars take me into a new place,
a world so beautiful,
a city of treasure buried beneath a sky of curses.

in the air the smell of death,
the grip of fear was all surrounding.
the oppression all-consuming,
overbearing,
overwhelming.
i am here, but i am filled with fear.
am i ready or am i standing in naivety?

“but the scriptures tell us that the lord has not given
us a spirit of
fear, but one of power and of love and of a sound mind,
that we can go
into the world and that christ will be our strength and
our protection,
and that the sick will be healed and the dead will be
raised.”

eeeeeeehhhhhhhyeh

send me out
let it be.
send me out
let it be.
i am your hands,
god use me.
send me out, (out)
let it be. (let it be.)
i am your hands, (your hands)
god use me!

a nation on it’s knees will see the power of god
released!!!
a nation on it’s face will see salvation in this
place!!!
