Hymn For A New Age

Ray Davies, released on Working Man's Café (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2007

.

I don't believe that God is a man with white hair

Sitting in a big chair

Judging the world and its morals

Forgiving today so we can sin again tomorrow

.

But I believe I need something to look up to

I believe I wanna pray but don't know what to

.

I'm not a born again preacher

My soul's too far gone to be saved

The world is wild and at this stage

We need a hymn for a new age

.

Ooh have you heard the news

Bible bashers where are the queues

A saint played a gig but he got crap reviews

The punters didn't like the product or the venue

.

I need something to connect to

Someone to help me through

Something I can pray to

.

This is my hymn for a new age

Rewrite the book on a fresh page

If I'm to find God and be saved

I need a hymn for a new age

.

(We need a hymn for a new age)

.

The invader's arrived now here comes the war

Satan keeps knocking at my door

Time has come for a new crusade

Cast out the evil before they blow the world away

.

We need a hymn

I believe

I need something to look up to

I believe I wanna pray but don't know what to.

.

We need a hymn for a new age

Rewrite the book on a fresh page

If I'm to find God and be saved

I need a hymn for a new age

.

We need a hymn for a new age

.

Each man build your own cross

For every soul that's ever been lost

Life is cheap people take it at no cost

We need a hymn for a new age

.
