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

by Randy Stonehill | from the 1981 album Equator

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

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
Still has left you thirsting
For something that can heal you

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

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

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
