Here in the wasteland
Where nobody knows your name
We will remember You
Standing in the ruins
Of stolen dreams and broken hearts
God let your Kingdom come

Oh Your river will run
Into every heart
Into every home

We just wanna sing a love song
Singing for the world to come alive
This is our home bright city
We’re just gonna keep on singing
Singing for the world to come alive
This is our hope bright city

Out of the wreckage
Faith and hope will come again
You will rebuild these walls
Beauty for ashes
Rise and let Your glory shine
We’ll be a city on a hill

Our hearts long for You (x3)
