lyrics

there's a holy miracle
every single night
when we lie down in our beds
and turn out all the lights
we breathed ourselves another day
we beat all the odds
we survived this deadly life
and gave it back to God

we didn't starve or thirst to death
or fall to some disease
we weren't lost or all alone
or left outside to freeze
there was no freeway accident
or collapse of the sun
we didn't die the victim
of some punk kid with a gun
there was no right-wing terrorist
or killer flash flood
we weren't sent to fight no war
we got no tainted blood
we weren't in the path of
some drunk man at the wheel
the day was rough but we got through
so every night we kneel
because

there's a holy miracle
every single night
when we lie down in our beds
and turn out all the lights
we breathed ourselves another day
we beat all the odds
we survived this deadly life
and gave it back to God

i was at that city church
where they circle around to pray
an old man with an african face
had a simple prayer to say
he said "thank you lord
for giving me every breath i take
and thank you lord
for giving me this new day"

there's a holy miracle
every single night
when we lie down in our beds
and turn out the lights
we breathed ourselves another day
we beat all the odds
we survived this deadly life
and gave it back to God
