​We Can Change The World

This song is by Shirley Caesar, features Saint James Missionary Baptist Choir and appears on the album Go (1981).

We can change this world if we pray, yes we can
We can change this old mean world if we pray, yes
Now if we'd all bow down on our bended knees
And cry, oh Lord, have mercy if you please

Now listen if you will
Now, if we pray and turn from our wicked ways
If we pray and turn from our wicked ways
God will heal our bodies and save our souls
He will heal our land today

Now blessed are they that mourn
I got something I wanna tell you right now
For those of you that don't believe me right now
I've come to tell you that prayer sure do change things
And god can work it out every time
Somebody say, how do you know, Sister Caesar?
One day I was so sick, I got sick of being sick
And it looked like all the doctors' medicine wouldn't do me no good
But I went down a deep ol' valley wherein I told god all about me
And he healed my body that day, yes he did

For those of you right now, that cannot see your way
For those of you that's been sick for so long
We change this world if we pray
Now, that's all you've got to do
We can change this world if we pray
If we'd all go down, bow down on our bended knees
And cry, Lord, have mercy if you please

Now, I've got one more thing I got to tell you and then I'll be through
It looks like everywhere men and women are haters of one another
But the bible said if my people that are called by my name
Would humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from your wicked ways
I heard him said, I'll heal your land
When we think about this land that we're living in right now
Look ahere look ayonder, looks like everywhere our children are dying
And our mothers and fathers are crying
Seems like Satan has the upper hand
But God is still in command and we can change this world if we pray

We can change this world if we pray
We can change this world if we pray
