Will you let us just keep digging
this trench of deep divide?
Will you leave us to our differences
as we cast our foes aside?
Will you let us spiral down
until humanity is lost?
Will you let us have no choice
but to see the greater cost?
Lord Jesus I can see
why you’d let us feel the strife
I understand the need
to let us see a self-led life
It’s disaster for our future
It’s a dreadful curse to bear
So I’m begging you to lead us 
to the place we know not where
There’s a future filled with hope
where we sacrifice for peace
where your love holds us united
and not one of us will grieve 
Lead us on O King Eternal
Lead us out beyond ourselves
for this current deep division
as a burden overwhelms
