Based on Romans 10:15

It's just the same thing every day
It's only bad news coming my way
Another war, there's a film at eleven
Another crime from the heart of man
I can sit here with my lock on the door
Change the channel as I try to ignore
Or get ready with shoes on my feet
And start dancing to another beat

Good news - you can read all about it
Good news - speak the word, never doubt it
Good news- 'cause we can't live without it
I got good news on a long-standing offer
Life you can never lose

Some people can't see the light of day
They need somebody to show them the way
They climb the walls in fear of the future
But God alone has the only cure
The world is spinning like it's out of control
There's only one thing that can save the soul
I'm feeling today is the day
So listen up, I've got something to say

All this bad news is getting me down
Got my head spinning around
Don't have to take it, you know you can choose
So listen up...I've got some good news

The world needs to hear good news of the love of God's Son
Every life can be changed by the hearing of what He's done
