‘Lost In A Lost World’ — Read the lyrics

This is the opening track on The Moody Blues 1972 album, Seventh Sojourn.

The song title, ‘Lost in a Lost World’ speaks for itself. If anything, the lyrics are more appropriate now than they were 49 years ago — they are quite profound and prophetic, a very sad testimony to where we are now, what we have become.

But there is always hope. Even if it feels that we have been deserted, goodness can and will return. That process begins by understanding the truth…through prayer…and through love.
