Not Too Far From Here

Somebody's down to their last dime.
Somebody's runnin out of time.
Not too far from here.
Somebody's got nowhere else to go
And somebody needs a little hope
Not too far from here.

And I may not know their name,
But I'm praying just the same
That You'd use me, Lord
To wipe away a tear
Cause somebody's crying
Not too far from here.

Somebody's troubled and confused,
Somebody's got nothing left to lose
Not too far from here.
And somebody's forgotten how to trust
And somebody's dying for love
Not too far from here.

It may be a stranger's face
But I'm praying for your grace
To move in me and wipe away a tear.
Cause somebody's hurting
Not too far from here

Help me, Lord
Not to turn away from him
Help me not to rest
While those around me weep
Give me your strength
And compassion
When somebody finds the road of life too steep

Somebody's troubled and confused,
Somebody's got nothing left to lose
Not too far from here.
And somebody's forgotten how to trust
And somebody's dying for love
Not too far from here.

Now I'm letting down my guard
And I'm opening my heart
To speak your love
To every needful ear
Jesus is waiting
Not too far from here.

Jesus is waiting
Not too far from here.
