Can You Hear It?--Lyrics

By Serena Joaquim

INTRO

VERSE (1st Soloist) When youíre heading down lifeís highway And you donít know where to go, If you listen you will hear it, The still voice of God who knows.

CHORUS 1 (1st Soloist) Can you hear it deep within you? God is calling. Can you hear it in the silence? God will know. Can you hear it deep within you? In the silence Can you hear it? God is always guiding you.

VERSE 2 (1st Soloist) Any time you make a wrong turn You feel lost and so alone. If you listen you will hear it The still voice will guide you home.

CHORUS 1

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

INSTRUMENTAL HALF-VERSE

VOCAL HALF-VERSE (1st Soloist) If you listen you will hear it. You are never on your own.

(At this point a 2nd Soloist or small group enters. Then the 1st Soloist sings in an improvisatory style, either ad libbing or using the printed part. The main part is sung by the 2nd soloist. Optional 1st soloist lyrics are in parentheses.)

CHORUS 2 Can you hear it deep within you? God is calling. (God is calling you.) Can you hear it in the silence? God will know. (God always knows.) Can you hear it deep within you, In the silence? (The still voice of God.) Can you hear it? God is always guiding you. (Godís guiding you.)


VAMP & IMPROV Can you hear it? Can you hear it? (Can you hear?) Can you hear it? (God is always guiding you.) Can you hear it? (God will always see you through.) Can you hear it? (God is always guiding you.) Can you hear it? (God will always see you through.) Can you hear it? (Can you hear?) Can you hear it? (Thatís my God.)

CHORUS 3 Can you hear it deep within you? God is calling. (God is calling you.) Can you hear it in the silence? God will know. (God always knows.) Can you hear it deep within you? In the silence (The still voice of God.) Can you hear it? God is always guiding you. (Oh yeah!)

CODA (All voices in unison) Can you hear it?
