Elias Dummer - How Many Songs Does It Take To Save the World? (CCM)

Elias Dummer - How Many Songs Does It Take To Save the World?
On Friday, June 24, Elias Dummer shared new music with this track titled 'How Many Songs Does It Take To Save the World?'. We are happy to be able to share the lyrics with you. The official audio can be heard below.

Ever catch yourself asking: "Where is God? How can this happen if He is in control?" But did you ever think about how you pray or sing? Is your prayer or praise the kind that has no power behind it? A prayer that doesn't reach higher than the ceiling, or is just one of those things you think you should do as a Christian?
What place does Christ really have in your life? Do you consider it a sacrifice when you go to church, and do you then sit there looking at the clock, anxiously waiting for the last 'amen' to ring?

All God asks is that we be faithful and include Him in our lives... not just when we face difficulties, have doubts, or during that hour or two on Sunday. He desires the entire package. Elias Dummer sings about how God is with you and that His song is more than strong enough to rescue. Ask yourself, is the song that you are singing in harmony with His song, and can it be heard throughout every part of your life? 


LYRICS

If I sing a new song
It had better be one worth singing
Not just for a quick buck
God knows that these verses don’t bring it
You cried for justice while I hummed a tune
You call the righteous now I’m asking You
Tell me, how many songs does it take to save the world?

If I sing a new song
It had better be one I’m living
Not just Sunday morning
A cup of coffee, high notes, and giving
You want us faithful
We bargain for power
You want the whole thing
I offered an hour
Tell me, how many songs does it take to save the world?

‘Cause if there’s one song
Well I’ll die to sing it
Don’t care bout hit songs
Preached to the choir
Wake up, you giant!
Quit lullabying
Tell me, how many songs does it take to save the world?

If I sing a new song
It had better ring out with justice
Not just for its own sake
With tired lines and old borrowed phrases
When yours is kingdom, don’t need market share?
You’d kick over tables In our house of prayer
Tell me, how many songs does it take to save the world?

‘Cause if there’s one song
Im gonna sing it
Don’t care bout hit songs
Preach to the choir
Wake up, you giant!
Quit lullabying
Tell me, how many songs does it take to save the world?

(One) God is with you and His song is
(Love) More than strong enough to rescue
(Come) he’s delighted so be silent
And you’ll hear that he’s been singing
