Is it a love/protest song or a protest/love song? You decide.


In a world where seldom do we get to choose
And even when you win, you lose
I thank God for you

In a world where no one stands for what they say
And fear and anger rule the day
I thank God for you

CHORUS: You’re my salvation
You’re the one who cured me of my stagnation
And changed my point of view
You’re my foundation
I believe in something pure and true
I thank God for you

In a world where bullies plot their evil schemes
Protected by computer screens
I thank God for you

In a world where kids live under microscopes
And many feel they’ve got no hope
I thank God for you


In a world where corporations kill the sea
And threaten all humanity
I thank God for you

In a world where love is strong but so is hate
And at times, it’s hard to keep the faith
I thank God for you
