One of the Ones Who Did

This song is by Brian McKnight, features Kirk Franklin and appears on the album U Turn (2003).

[Spoken:]
For every little girl and every little boy
Whose mother and father is across the waters
Fighting a war that they know nothing about
We pray for you tonight
God help us

[Sung:]
We're running out of time
Can't waste it (can't waste it)
Have you seen the news today?
War is on the uprise
He said it was to be this way
And Lord, I know that millions won't make it
This life's all I have to live
And I'll gladly give it
To be one of the ones who did (thank you)

Ever since creation
We been counting down the time from then to now and we will see
Nations fighting nations
I hide the word inside my heart, then I read about
Men inventing weapons of mass destruction
To tear us all apart
But like the rising of the sun
We're waiting for you to come and take us away

Those of us who believe in you
Believe me when I say

We're running out of time
Can't waste it (have you seen it?)
Have you seen the news today?
War is on the uprise
He said it was to be this way
And Lord, I know that millions won't make it (but I'm so glad, Jesus)
This life's all I have to live
And I'll gladly give it
To be one of the ones who did

I'm gonna hang on to you, Lord
I'm gonna stay strong for you, Lord
I'm gonna keep holdin' on
Gonna keep holdin' on to your unchanging hand

Lord, you know the plan
That you have for me
It's not my will
But it's your way
And I'm gonna follow that way
Lord
With a made up mind
I'm willing to go on through
I'm not gonna worry about what my friends might say
What my friends might do
I'm gonna follow you Lord
I'm gonna follow you Lord

And if my daddy don't go
If my mama, if my mama don't go
If my sister don't go
If my brother don't go
I'm going, I'm going through, Lord

If my preacher don't go
I'm going
Ooh
Oh Lord
I surrender with a made up mind
I'm goin' through
Oooh

[Spoken:]
So Father, we pray right now
That you hear our cries
For peace, for restoration, give us hope right now
Without you, we can't make it
We've tried and we're sorry
But we look to the hills
That must come with our help
'Cause we know our help comes from you
We're gonna hold on
Said we're gonna hold on to you
We're not gonna let go this time, Father
We're gonna trust and have faith
The size of a mustard seed
Bless your name, Father
You're worthy
