I Want To Be Part of The Bucket Brigade!!!

Still on the music series! This entry is by far my FAVORITE video! I love both the song and the video...the images and idea behind it is profound. However, it does take away from the lyrics, which are phenomenal in their own right. All in all, a spectacular song. I suggest playing it twice: once to watch the video, then once to listen/read the lyrics!

World On Fire- Sarah McLachlan

Hearts are worn in these dark ages
You're not alone in these stories pages
The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying
And Ill try to hold it in Yeah Ill try to hold it in


The world's on fire its more then I can handle
Ill tap into the water try and bring my share
Try to bring more, more then I can handle
Bring it to the table Bring what I am able

I watch the heavens but I find no calling
Something I can do to change whats coming
Stay close to me while the sky is falling
I don't wanna be left alone don't wanna be alone


Hearts break hearts mend love still hurts
Visions clash planes crash still there's talk of
saving souls still colds closing in on us

We part the veil on our killer sun
Stray from the straight line on this short run
The more we take the less we become
The fortune of one man means less for some


As a followup to my last post,
What am I (an American Christian) doing with all my power?
Well, I can't do it alone!
I really, really wish I could!
I need help!
I want to END WORLD POVERTY!!!!!!
But it's bigger than just me.
I can do my part, but We need the Church to do its part!
we need you to do your part!

"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'" --Matt. 25:37-40

Visit to see how you can make a difference!


  1. The thing I love about this video is that she uses what's at her hands to make a difference. That's a great thing.

  2. good point...I need to make an inventory of what I have...right now it doesn't feel like much!
    I have:
    a blog site
    a discussion group
    halo 3

    prob. coulda done withouth the halo 3 and the iphone:( I admit, i have my hangups too! I am flawed like everyone else. But I'm trying!!!! I promise I am!

    This is the biggest issue on my heart right now! You make a great point Jeff. There was one commment a long time back on this video on youtube that said, "I wish a LOT of artests did this. This is what we need, a DVD of artists sitting in the living room, park benches, wherever, singing there song and telling about what they did with the money they could have spent on the video." All proceeds of the DVD's would go to charity of course!

    I really agonize over this question...what can I do to eliminate world poverty???

    hmm...out of that list I can see some things that might be a small start if conbined!
