Vs 1:
So much is going on in this world today
No matter where I go seems like no place is safe
Can't help but to wonder what another day is going to bring
Will it be sunshine are will it bring rain

Chorus:
We gotta hold on and stay strong
No matter what comes our way
We gotta pray our way through the storm
We gotta hold on to God's unchanging hand

Vs 2:
There's not a day that goes by I wonder why
Do we have to live in fear for our lives
Every time I read the paper are turn on the TV
Something bad is always happening

Chorus:
We gotta hold on and stay strong
No matter what comes our way
We gotta pray our way through the storm
We gotta hold on to God's unchanging hand

Vs 3:
Life is filled with so many troubles
So many trials we have to endure
So much pain and sorrow we have to bare
At the mercy of a stranger with a gun in his hand

Bridge:
This world ain't going to get no better
Until we learn to love one another
Cause only love can drive out hate
Love is the only way

Chorus:
We gotta hold on and stay strong
No matter what comes our way
We gotta pray our way through the storm
We gotta hold on to God's unchanging hand

Hi D, I think you overstate the obvious here(life aint easy) and understate the happy side, I like the idea/title but it's buried in the bridge, ending a chorus on ( love is the only way) would be real strong imo,
all the best,john

Sir thank you for your feedback and for pointing this out to me. I'm currently doing some revising of this lyric. So many words were racing through my mind prior to writing this lyric. Thanks again sir for taking the time to review my lyric and for giving feedback. God bless!

I feel that the nature of the song is fine as it is, but it is obvious that we can use a little bit of balance when there is conflict on how to deal with things. Those who won't venture out because of obsessive fear are all the criminals' best friends; shows they have pretty much given up. This song can be interpreted as a hybrid message inspired by two different type of songs, one the 1960s hit with the line about smiling on your brother and trying to love one another. The other being that classic Broadway era song from Carousel, "You'll Never Walk Alone".
