In Not Of - Avalon

I hide me far away from trouble
The world outside me grows darker by the day
So I promise to stay here close beside Him
Surely God would want His children safe

Then reading, how my eyes were opened
I find that He is leading us out into the world
Into the middle of fallen saints and sinners
Where a little grace is needed most

Come take the light to darker parts
Share his truth with hardened hearts
We are not like the world... but we can love it
Come bring the Hope to hopeless men
Until the lost are found in Him
He came to save the world so let us be
In it, not of it

Wait a minute,
if we say we love them, why are we not in it
Why we run and hide
Entertain a stranger
Maybe entertain an angel
The danger is if our worlds don't collide

Come take the light to darker parts
Share his truth with hardened hearts
We are not like the world... but we can love it
Come bring the Hope to hopeless men
Until the lost are found in Him
He came to save the world so let us be
In it, not of it

We've cursed the darkness far too long
We need to hold the candle high
We have to go and right the wrongs
We need to touch the world with love
With His love

Come take the light to darker parts
Share his truth with hardened hearts
We are not like the world... but we can love it
Come bring the Hope to hopeless men
Until the lost are found in Him
He came to save the world so let us be
In it, not of it
