From a distance

Nanci Griffith

>From a distance, the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white       
>From a distance, the ocean meets the stream
 And the eagle takes to flight  
 >From a distance, there is harmony
And it echoes through the land    
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace
It's the voice of every man                      

>From a distance, we all have enough

And no one is in need

There are no guns, no bombs, no disease,

No hungry mouths to feed

>From a distance, we are instruments

Marching in a common band

Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace

They're the songs of every man

                                    God is watching us, God is watching us,
 God is watching us, from a distance

>From a distance, you look like my friend

Even though we are at war

>From a distance, I can't comprehend

What all this war is for

>From a distance, there is harmony

And it echoes through the land

It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves,

It's the heart of every man

And God is watching us, God is watching us,
 God is watching us, from a distance
Oh God is watching us, from a distance
