Many children were in need, with an out stretched hand:
Their hearts were all broken, and starving for care,
In hopes that great love . . .soon would be there.
While visions of hunger danced in their heads;
The children needed scarves and oh for a cap,
While finding a place for a cold winter's nap.
I sprang from my spot to see what was the matter!
Away to the street I flew like a flash,
My head it was swimming . . . my eyes they did dash. .
Another drug exposed infant . . .. Oh my dear!
Little out stretched arms and movements so mixed,
I knew in a moment he could not be fixed!
They were lunging and shouting, and saying my name
Hold us and care!
Give us your love, and show us you'll be there!
The needs of them all did so greatly show!
Standing up and turning around,
Were yet more children waiting to be found.
Lonely and scared awaiting the death, they would meet.
Their faces so sad . . .. and old from their life,
Experiencing nothing but sadness and strife!
Filling me with sorrow, my heart how it hurt.
Their hands gentle touching the tip of my nose
Giving me a nod and a smile; my heart oh it rose!
The children in need, they are everywhere.
My Father above, exclaim in a voice quiet and strong,
Care and love for my children and to ME you'll belong.
