TAKE THIS CUP AWAY

By Lisa Huddleston

Verse 1

There now are wars
And rumors of wars

Take this cup away

But who knows what
We’re fighting for

Take this cup away

When all sides think that
Might makes right

Take this cup away

Gotta walk by faith
And not by sight

Take this cup away

Take this cup away, Lord
Take this cup away
Take this cup away

Verse 2

There’s a man in the north
Who’s reaching forth

Take this cup away

And a man in the west
Who thinks he’s best

Take this cup away

Big men who seek to
Settle scores

Take this cup away

Both think they’re right
To break down doors

Take this cup away

Take this cup away, Lord
Take this cup away
Take this cup away

Verse 3

Gotta turn our eyes
To the eastern skies

Take this cup away

Just the fear of the Lord
Will make us wise

Take this cup away

When that bright star comes
Then all will see

Take this cup away

He’ll break our chains
Set all men free

Take this cup away

Take this cup away, Lord
Take this cup away
Take this cup away

Verse 4

Until that day
Gotta see it through

Take this cup away

Their bombs may
Blow this world in two

Take this cup away

Until then grace
Around us pours

Take this cup away

Still time to learn
Not mine but yours

Take this cup away

Take this cup away, Lord
Take this cup away
Take this cup away, Lord
Take this cup away
Take this cup away
