I’m white, you’re black, she’s brown, he’s tan, they’re not.
while it seems on the outside there are so many differences
isn’t what’s on the inside what counts the most?
we talk about it, we judge by it
it’s not a condition
it’s not something to be fixed
it’s only a color
and God Himself made them all
AND HE SAID IT WAS GOOD!
if we were all blind, would race matter?
if we were all one color, i think we’d still have plenty to talk about
when it all boils down
when it’s all come out in the wash
when there’s nothing left but our humanity
what do we have to fight about?
to be superior or even inferior about?
at the core we all bleed
in the center of us all we want to be loved, cared for…accepted
all those things,
the things i just listed
Yeah, that’s all any person really wants
so if you need to separate yourself from someone
do it for the right reasons
do it for safety, do it for justice
but never, ever do it for a color
we are all God’s chosen generation, His royal priesthood,
a holy nation
His own special people
to proclaim His praises
because He is the One that calls ALL colors, ALL races OUT of darkness into His marvelous light!
voices, they aren’t colors
praises, they don’t have colors
God’s people, they HAVE colors
and He thinks they’re ALL GOOD
so should we.
