Songs For Our Times #26

Robert Counts – Better People Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

For our 26th song, I chose Better People by Robert Counts. This is a new country singer but I believe he is going to be a big star. We just need better people in this world. We need to do better.

lyrics:

Well, we’re right there every Sunday
With a Bible in our hands
We sing along to every song
Bow our heads and say amen
We give ten percent to Jesus
And on a good month, a little more
But to that panhandler down on Church Street
We just nod and lock the door


The world don’t need another soapbox preacher
Talkin’ ’bout streets of gold
Just someone we can lean on
And a steady hand to hold
We don’t need bigger churches
Oh, with higher steeples
We need deeper love, softer hearts
And better people, yeah yeah


I ain’t sayin’ I got it all figured out
There’s still a lot that I don’t know
I’m gonna ask St. Peter ’bout a million things
If he lets me through that door
We’ll sing Amazing Grace with smiling faces
The last ones shall be first
Well, if you ask me, brother what we need’s
More heaven here on earth

The world don’t need another soapbox preacher
Talkin’ ’bout streets of gold
Just someone we can lean on
And a steady hand to hold
We don’t need bigger churches
Oh, with higher steeples
We need deeper love, softer hearts
And better people, yeah yeah


The world don’t need another soapbox preacher
Talkin’ ’bout streets of gold
Just someone we can lean on
And a steady hand to hold
We don’t need bigger churches
Oh, with higher steeples
We need deeper love, softer hearts
And better people, yeah yeah
Oh, we need better people, yeah
