Some are hungry some are dying.
Numbing poverty's to blame,
tiny limbs on tiny frames.
Can you hear the children sighing?
Swollen bellies few are thriving.
Civil wars and genocides,
leave them nowhere left to hide.
Can you hear the children screaming?
Turn your head pretend you're dreaming.
Close your eyes and go your way,
say you'll help some other day.
Psalm 145:16 "You are opening your hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing."
Can you hear the children playing?
See them pet the newborn yearling.
Fun and food and lots of sun,
good things now for everyone.
Can you hear the children laughing?
Watch them plant the tender sapling.
Mom and dad and grandma too,
helping earth be born anew.
Can you hear the children singing?
Voices raised all ears are ringing.
Praising Jah for what he's done,
songs that also thank the Son.
Revelation 21:4 "And He will wipe out every tear from there eyes, and death will be no more,
neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
Without hope, nothing can and will change.
beautiful done !
"HOW ye treat the LEAST of US is ALSO HOW ye treat ME" ....
"Every child born is a SIGN that GOD is NOT yet DISCOURAGED of MAN" (Tigare)
I love it!!!
This is a great work in my opinion. It shows the truth happing all around the world. Open eyes and open hears will tell that it is not only limited to third world countries - no, it has already affected all nations, all cultures, nearly all ethnics.
Thanks for opening up and awakening people with this "song". Most can hear, but most do not do anything either.
The second part of the "song" is more of a positive nature, of arousing people to help the poor - inspired by love, planted in the hearts
Really well written and contrasted, and beautiful references.
