(music video) Randy Stonehill: 'China' — "A billion hearts are beating / Far across the water / China… • And when the sun is shining / Their land is cloaked in darkness / China… • Silent eyes watching the western world / Guarded hearts hidden like precious pearls / Who can reach you, China / Praying for you, China"

The only song I ever sang/played during a regular, Sunday service at Abbott Loop Christian Center, probably in ’83.

China

by Randy Stonehill | from the 1981 album Equator

A billion hearts are beating
Far across the water
China…
And when the sun is shining
Their land is cloaked in darkness
China…

Silent eyes watching the western world
Guarded hearts hidden like precious pearls
Who can reach you, China

All the ancient wisdom
Passed down through the ages
China…
Still has left you thirsting
For something that can heal you
China…

Laboring under the crimson hand
Countless wheels turning at each command
Praying for you, China

Some recall the story
Told by distant strangers
China…
Whispered like a rumor
The King of Hearts is coming
China…

Hands of love knock at your mighty wall
All your tears Jesus has felt them fall
He’s calling to you, China
Praying for you, China
Who can reach you, China
