Weigh Nothing Light

Leader: Weigh nothing light on my soul
Are you still in control

Student 1: 3,000 children and teens a day see their parent’s marriage end in divorce

Leader: I desperately need You, I desperately know
Love left me hungry, life gave me pain
This world washed dreams away like the gray rain

Student 3: 66% of the population believes that absolute truth cannot be found

Leader: In you is my promise, I’m so afraid I let it slow
In You is salvation, in You is my glow
So sinking and worthless
So stinking, so fruitless
Smudges like newspaper, sooty and raw

Student 2: The suicide rate among teen has quadrupled in the last 4 decades

Student 4: An estimated 270,000 guns are carried to school in America every day
Leader: Where did You go? Why did I leave?
This absence felt keenly, I need You to breathe
I’m trying to find You, I diving below

Student 2: It has been said that the mark of my generation is a reason for HOPE
Leader: Hoping I find Your purity, more holy than snow
Still feeling gone, all the ways that I’ve shifted
But You’re here and I’m here,

Student 1: On September 12, over 3 million students gathered around their school’s
flagpoles to pray for their campus, community and country.
Leader: You, just give me wings
Like an eagle I’ll fly above all pointless things

Student 3: In the year 2001, 500,000 students are meeting at their schools in 7,700 FCA
groups nationwide
Leader: The yokes are so heavy, the gap is so side
Crucified by my ignorance, and dying in my pride

Student 4: Last year, I prayed for my school

Student 1: Last month, I invited my classmates to our campus meeting

Student 3: Last week I shared my faith with my friend

Student 2: IN Northern VA there are over 2,000 students like me meeting on a weekly basis
in the name of HOPE

Leader: So please be my answer, and please help me cope
So don’t let me leave You, so tied to Your Hope
Always stay in control
Weigh nothing light on my soul
