Lyrics

We want our coffee in the lobby
We watch our worship on the screen
We got a Rockstar preacher
Who won’t wake us from our dreams
We want our blessings in our pockets
But we keep our missions overseas
But for the hurting in our cities
Would we even cross the street?

But we want to see the hearts set free and the tyrants kneel
The walls fall down and our land be healed
But church if we want to see a change in the world out there
It’s got to start right here It’s got to start right now
Lord, I’m starting right here Lord, I’m starting right now

I’m like the brother of the prodigal
Who turned his nose and puffed his chest
He didn’t run off like his brother
But his soul was just as dead
What if the church on Sunday
Was still the church on Monday too
What if we came down from our towers
And walked a mile in someone’s shoes

‘Cause we want to see the hearts set free and the tyrants kneel
The walls fall down and our land be healed
But church if we want to see a change in the world out there

We’re the people who are called by His name
If we’ll surrender all our pride and turn from our ways
He will hear from Heaven and forgive our sin
He will heal our land but it starts right here
We’re the people who are called by His name
If we’ll surrender all our pride and turn from our ways
He will hear from Heaven and forgive our sin
He will heal our land…

It’s got to start right here
It’s got to start right now
Lord, I’m starting right here
Lord, I’m starting right now
It’s got to start right here
It’s got to start right now
Lord, I’m starting right here
Lord, I’m starting right now

About This Song

"What I'm finding is our churches are getting more and more comfortable for the few that are inside, and less and less appealing to the one's that are outside."

Watch Mark Hall drop more truth in the teaching video for the song, "Start Right Here."
