"Do Something Now"
Written by Steve Camp and Phil Madeira

Do we see Jesus in their hungry eyes? [Amy Grant]
Are we so numb that we can't sympathize? [Amy Grant/Larry Norman] 
Maybe we're too willing just to eulogize instead of... [Kathy Troccoli]
rolling up our sleeves and trying to resurrect a world that's dying [Russ Taff]
We got a world that's dying [Russ Taff]

Down in Ethiopia a silent baby clings to an empty breast [Evie Karlsson]
Down in Ethiopia another cries for food or eternal rest [Phil Keaggy]
We can touch somebody. Reach out with love to a helpless face [Scott Wesley Brown]
Everybody is our brother and sister [Scott Wesley Brown/Michele Pillar]
Reach out and be an agent of grace [Michele Pillar]

CHORUS
Do something now See their broken lives, pick up the pieces Do something now Open up your heart, share the love of Jesus
If we really care, we'll do something now [Steve Camp]

Here in Utopia they're just another item in the news tonight [Sandi Patti]
Wake up, America, they're dying while We're dreaming about paradise [Russ Taff]
You can touch somebody [Dana Key]
Reach out with love to a helpless face [Dana Key/Mylon LeFevre]
Everybody is our brother and our sister [Mylon LeFevre]
Reach out and be an agent of grace [Jessy Dixon]

(CHORUS)
If we really care, we'll do something You gotta do something [Steve Taylor]

Jesus said, [Matthew Ward]
When you do it for one of these you've done it unto me [Second Chapter of Acts]
When one hurts, we all hurt  'cause we're a family [Matthew Ward]
There's a blessing when we sacrifice You've got to give yourself away to save one more life [Sheila Walsh]
Just one more life You can save one more life [Phil Keaggy]

(CHORUS)
