In times like these you, reach out for someone to hold
In times like these, mmm…
In times like these you can lend a helping hand
In times like these, whoa…

In times like these, you cry out in all your pain
In times like these, mmm…
In times like these, you search for the light that leads the way
In times like these, in times like these

Chorus:
We can be strong if we unite as one together
Its not so hard to show some love to one another
Please show some love in times like these

In times like these, so many thoughts go through your mind
In times like these, mmm…
In times like these, you get confused, mixed up inside
In times like these, whoa…

In times like these, you think you’ll die you’re terrified
In times like these, mmm…
In times like these, God is your hope He’s by your side
In times like these, whoa…
