I hear your voice crying in the darkness

C7

I hear your voice calling out my name

Fm

I hear your voice telling me to wake up

Bbm C7 Fm

I served, now you do the same.

I hear this voice urging me to action,

C7

I hear this voice calling out my name,

Fm

I hear this voice drumming through my heartbeat

Bbm C7 Fm

I gave, now you do the same.

I don't want your prayers or your protestations

C7 Fm C7 Fm

Don't want your vows or your empty words

Don't ask me to bless all your celebrations

You're wasting your time with your fancy words

I love, now you do the same …I hear your voice rpt
