Bm        D        Gmaj7     Bm7
 Children begging, children sold
          D            Gmaj7     Bm7
Children abused from a few years old
         D            Gmaj7     Bm7
Children working on a rubbish heap
         D      Gmaj7     Em
Children empty, children weak

But I see hope, it's in us  [To chorus]
Chorus:
G   Em          Bm             G
 Be loosed, you chains of wickedness
   Em       Bm              G
Be free you helpless, you oppressed
 Em     Bm                  G
Arise O bride come stand as one
   Em      Bm  Dmaj7  Em   Bm   D   G  
We are the answer            [To verse 3]

 Go to the outcast, give to the poor

Comfort the widow, the orphan, the torn
            D          Gmaj7           Bm7
To feed the hungry, be strength to the weak
             D              Gmaj7       Bm7
Set free the captive, bring hope to the thief
     G     D/F♯        A
But I see hope, it's in us  [To chorus]
Tag:
Em               G    D              A
 We call forth justice, We call forth truth
Em              G            D
 We call forth peace upon our land  [Fine]

A BROKEN NATION IN A BROKEN WORLD
With broken families in broken homes
Where broken people with broken hearts
Have broken children with broken starts

Children begging, children sold
Children abused from a few years old
Children working on a rubbish heap
Children empty, children weak

But I see hope, it's in us

Be loosed, you chains of wickedness
Be free you helpless, you oppressed
Arise O bride come stand as one
We are the answer

Go to the outcast, give to the poor
Comfort the widow, the orphan, the torn
To feed the hungry, be strength to the weak
Set free the captive, bring hope to the thief

But I see hope, it’s in us

We call forth justice
We call forth truth
We call forth peace upon our land
