I have to say my friends
This road goes a long, long way
And if we're gonna find the end
We're gonna need a helping hand
I have to say my friends
We're looking for a light ahead
In the distance a candle burns
Salvation keeps the hungry children fed
chorus:
It's gotta take a lot of salvation
What we need are willing hands
You must feel the sweat in your eyes
You must understand salvation
A chance to put the devil down
Without the fear of hell
Salvation spreads the gospel 'round
And free you from yourself
(repeat chorus)
I have to say my friends
This road goes a long, long way
And if we're gonna find the end
We're gonna need a helping hand
I have to say my friends
We're looking for a light ahead
In the distance a candle burns
Salvation keeps the hungry children fed
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
