People Need the Lord


[C]Ev'ry day they [G]pass me [C]by,  I can see it [G]in their [F]eye;
empty people [Am7]filled with care,[Dm] headed who knows [G]where.  [G7]
[C]On they go through private pain, living [C7]fear to fear; [Dm7]
Laughter hides the [C]silent cries [F]  only Jesus [G]hears,


[C]People need the [Dm7]Lord,   [C]People need the [F]Lord,
[G]At the end of [C]broken dreams [Dm7]  He's the open [G]door  [G7]
[C]People need the [Dm7]Lord,   [C]People need the [F]Lord.
[G]When will we [C]realize?   [Dm7]People [G]need the [C]Lord.


[C]We are called to [G]take His [C]light,  To a world where [G]wrong is
[F]right;
What could be too [Am7]great a cost  [Dm7]For sharing life with [G]one
who's lost?  [G7]
[C]Through His love our hearts can feel,  All the [C7]grief they bear; 
[Dm7]
They must hear the [C]Words of Life  [F]only we can [G]share.


[C]People need the [Dm7]Lord,   [C]People need the [F]Lord,
[G]At the end of [C]broken dreams  [Dm7] He's the open [G]door  [G7]
[C]People need the [Dm]Lord,   [C]People need the [F]Lord.
[G]When will we [C]realize?   [G]That we must [C]give our lives,
For [Dm]people [G]need the [C]Lord.    

(slow down)
[Dm7]  People [G7]need  the [C]Lord.  [Cmaj7]
