The sun is coming up on the ocean This love is like a drop in the ocean This love is like a drop in the ocean 
Yahweh, Yahweh Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart Take this heart Take this heart And make it break
