Cry from the East
by Michael Omartian

Album: The Race
by Michael Omartian


Sun rises in the east,
Knees touch the ground,
Sometimes to pray,
Sometimes to beg for life,
(It's a cold cruel world)
While princes and presidents decide their fate,
The people struggle in the streets,
All waiting to hear the voice of God.

Will it ever change, will it stay the same?
Tell me who's in charge,
Tell me who's to blame,
A cry from the east.

Chorus 1:
It's here in the race,
It's Isaac and Ishmael at the well,
Touched by hell,
Warriors for eternity,
Brothers yes, brothers no,
God's creation, don't they know,
Time for love, time for peace,
Is the cry from the east.

The privileged rule the masses,
The master of the slave,
Who says one man's better,
That's truly just man made,
(not just what my God says)
Moses he told Pharoah,
"Let My people go,"
We only serve one master,
Someone you need to know.

Pre-Chorus 2:
Do we ever change, or just remain the same,
Only time will tell,
Tell me who's in charge,
Is there anyone to blame?
A cry from the east.

Chorus 2:
It's here in the race,
It's Isaac and Ishmael at the well,
Touched by hell,
Warriors for eternity,
Brothers yes, Brothers no,
God's creation, don't they know.
From the greatest to the least,
Is the cry from the east.

Sun sets in the west,
Hands raise to the sky,
Sometimes to pray,
Sometimes to surrender,
(It's a cold, cruel world)
Life goes on, the inner man cries,
"Who will bridge the gap between us,
and give us peace?"
