What This World Needs by Casting Crowns – Acoustic Cover

This song ROCKS. It especially rocks to play. It especially rocks a lot to play with a full band. We’ve used this song a few times in our services. Casting Crowns has proved to be a game changer in Christian music. There songs are well delivered and usually carry a challenging message. Well done, Casting Crowns! It’s always a challenge to ‘bring it’ in a song like this when trying to pull it off on an acoustic guitar. I definitely gave it my all on this one. You’ll see that it’s a lot of words to get right!

What This World Needs

Hector Cervantes | Mark Hall

What this world needs
Is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind
Another two bit politician peddling lies
Another three ring circus society
What this world needs
Is not another sign waving super saint
That’s better than you
Another ear pleasing candy man
Afraid of the truth
Another prophet in an Armani suit

What this world needs
Is a Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love them
In their time of need
A Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love
That’s what this world needs

What this world needs
Is for us to care more about the inside
Than the outside
Have we become so blind that we can’t see
God’s gotta change her heart
Before He changes her shirt
What this world needs
Is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance
Blending in so well
That people can’t see the difference
And it’s the difference that sets the world free

Jesus is our Savior
That’s what this world needs
Father’s arms around you
That’s what this world needs
That’s what this world needs
