My neighbor has a longing
But I’m not sure what it is
For I am safe in my house
And he is stuck in his
I hope it all works out
These dreams he has inside
I believe God has a plan for him
For grace is deep and wide
I hope within my heart
But my hands remain unmoved
The call to give my everything
Is the plea I have refused
For why should we both be
In places of distress
If my neighbor finds his way here
Is not all that for the best
O Lord, why do you ask so much
When you can quickly fix it all
Why must we tear down barriers
When you could simply make them fall
My child, love grows deeper
When a neighbor ‘comes a friend
There is something deeply beautiful
When wealth is means instead of end
