People keep talkin’ ‘bout climate change But miss the message from above: We need Jesus to change our climate From one of hate to one of love. Nations fightin’ nations People dyin’ every day Poor folks goin’ hungry Rich folks don’t wanna pay. How can people say they love Jesus And let His children starve? Some folks who can do more to help Are tryin’ to move to Mars. More technology than ever Speed-of-light communicatin’ But when it’s time to love our neighbor It’s slow-motion, too much hatin'. War of words keeps escalatin’ Politicians prevaricatin’ Rich gettin’ richer Poor gettin’ poorer None of this is in God’s order! So let us humble ourselves and pray And turn from our wicked ways Ask Father God to forgive our sins Open our hearts and let Jesus in. Our lives eternal He will seal And we’ll have climate change for real. To those folks talkin’ ‘bout climate change Heed the message from above: We need Jesus to change our climate From one of hate to one of love.
