From babies hidden in the shadows,
To the cities shining bright,
There are captives weeping far from sight.
For every doorway there's a story,
And some are holding back the cry,
But there is One who hears us in the night.
Great God, wrap Your arms around the world tonight,
Around the world tonight.
And when You hear our cry, sing through the night.
So we can join in Your song,
And sing along, yeah, we'll sing along.
For the farthest corners of the earth,
Still His mercy reaches,
Even to the pain we cannot see.
And even through the darkness,
There's a promise that will keep us.
There is One who came to set us free.
So let Your song rise and fill up the earth,
And let Your hope ring out, let Your heart be heard.
