I want to stand.
I want to stand
Because God gave me
Two legs to stand on.
Please let me stand.

I want to speak.
I want to speak
Because God gave me
One mouth to shout His word.
Please let me speak.

I want to be heard.
I want to be heard
Because God gave me
The truth to tell the world.
Please let me be heard.

I want to change the world.
I want to change the world
Because God gave me
The desire to serve.
Please let me change the world.

I want to love.
I want to love
Because of how God loved me
Because God loves you
Because God loves us
Because love is
What He gave to the world
What changed the world
What saved the world.
Please let Him love.

I liked the way you wrote this. I'm working very hard to appreciate religious writing. Since I'm not religious it kind of annoys me, but yours didn't so much. Which is a compliment. Lol. I'm working on it. :]

I really did like this though.
