People Need the Lord

We just concluded our morning chapel service here in South Carolina as we prepare to spend the weekend visiting four different state prisons.

The need is great, but the All-Sufficient One is greater.
The lost are all around us, but the Way, Truth, and Life has promised to go with us.
In places of darkness, we proclaim the Light.
The hurting and broken are longing for the Comforter.
And precious souls are seeking the peace that only comes through the Savior!

What a glorious gospel we have to proclaim!!
Every day they pass me by,
I can see it in their eyes.
Empty people filled with care, headed who knows where...

On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears!

People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.

People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize, people need the Lord?


We are called to take His light,
To a world where wrong seems right.
What could be too great a cost,
For sharing Life with one who's lost?

People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.

People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize, people need the Lord!




Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the Words of Life
Only we can share.



People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.

People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize, people need the Lord!




Many thanks to We Care Ministries for giving us permission to use these photographs.


Please remember us -- and the 400+ volunteers -- in prayer as we share in the South Carolina prisons this weekend!
