America, Europe, Africa, Asia wake up! That’s the message Reba brings in this powerful song Back to God. A song dedicated to opening our eyes in seeing how much of a lost, and dying world that needs Jesus. Reba talks about how she heard this song on Randy Houser’s CD, and fell in deep with its message that she just had to record it as well.

The song Back to God is centered around the listener. The singer is asking you if you’ve “looked around” and noticed the condition of the world today. A world that’s full of violence, evil, greed, lust, and anything not having to do with God, love, or compassion. When Reba gets to the chours it says “you’ve got to get down on your knees, believe…” because the moment we Christians stop caring about what’s going on, how we share God’s love, how we reach the youth, is the day that everything will crumble before us. If we as Christian can’t give ourselves to God then whats the point of calling us Christians? Christ-like individuals? We must be an example to others, and share God’s love. With everyone around us, near us, and far from us.

The song is off her album Sing it Now, which is a 2 disc featuring her favorite hymns on one, and inspirational songs on the other. Released on January 20, 2017 and has since received a lot of recognition. The music video alone, since being released on January 24, 2017 has over 10 million views on Youtube. More about Reba.

Lyrics

Oh have you looked around
Have you heard the sound
Of Mama’s cryin’
Or do you turn away
When you see the face
Of the innocent dyin’
In these darkest days
Are you not afraid
That it’s too late

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Gotta keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
We gotta give this world back to God

Have you lost a love?
Do you feel like givin’ up?
Has your heart been broken?
Are your kids okay?
Will they come home safe?
Do you lie there hoping?
You can make a wish, you can knock on wood
Oh it won’t do no good

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Gotta keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
We gotta give this world back to God

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
You can hope the best
Make a wish
The only answer is
We give this world back to God
Oh, give it back
