Foreman, Jon - All Of God's Children Lyrics




When the things that you can't hold on to
Are the ones that you wish you could keep
Are you really ready to pay for love
If it costs you everything?

All of God's children
All of God's children
Shining underneath
Shining underneath

I believe in a world that's beyond me
I believe in a world I ain't seen
Past the glass, and shotgun shacks
And violent, faceless, racist facts
I believe in a world that's made clean

All of God's children
All of God's children
Shining underneath
Shining underneath

Underneath these wars
Underneath these walls
Underneath the bullet holes
I still don't know who we are
But it's shining underneath
Oh, I've been waiting for love to give birth
New life to show pain it's worth
I've been waiting for peace on earth
Like a newborn child
Oh, like a newborn child
Shining underneath

Is there a well that won't run empty?
Is there a friend that can't be bought?
Do you find them when you're thirsty?
Learn the lesson that can't be taught

All of God's children
All of God's children
Shining underneath
Shining underneath

  15. Soy Tuyo

    Hermosa canción como siempre Jon lo maximo, pero algo me pone triste y es que Jon Foreman creo que no lucha lo suficiente contra su gobierno no lucha contra las atrocidades que ha hecho y hace en todo el mundo , IRAK, AFGANISTAN, SIRIA, UCRANIA, VENEZUELA, como cristiano fuimos hechos libres para no vivir con la mentira y Jon Foreman vive en el pais de la mentira y la manipulación,

    Nathan Spencer

    Ha hecho Looking For America con su banda Switchfoot. Por favor, disculpe la gramática.

    badlydoll Vargas

    He visto tantas cosas buenas de ese hombre, el cambio sólo lo puede hacer Dios, ningún hombre por si mismo puede cambiar la situación en este mundo, creo que el ha aportado tanto con ese talento hermoso que Dios le dió, incluso sus canciones han salvado vidas de chicos con depresión que han atentado con su vida, Dios es bueno.

  16. Vintage Passenger

    "When the things that you can’t hold onto
    Are the ones that you wish you could keep
    Are you really ready to pay for love
    If it costs you everything"- Jon Foreman never disappoints to touch the soul with such profound lyrics.
