I open up the fridge at will
Turn up the heat when there's a chill
I'm fed, I'm warm, I know I'm safe
Yet from my mind cannot escape
The pleading in those innocent eyes
The never-ending wondering "why's"
"We have no hope, no clothes, no food
Can you please help? Is there something you can do?"
They are in a prison without a key
Knowing this need, we can't turn away
When dark brown eyes into mine gaze
Within my heart, a question will raise
What can we do for these poor babes?
How can they make it through the day?
To see, feel and know their needs
Will humble you, break you, bring you to your knees
Winter's here, it's time to prepare
The season's here in which we share
The hope and peace and love of God
But wait, there's a need you may not know of:
Of cold, of hunger, of shame and despair
Of families alone 'cause no one will "GO THERE"
We need your help to meet this task
Please talk to God is all we ask
To help these children who stand in need
We'll do our best to clothe and feed
We send out thanks with all our hearts
For joining with us in some small part!
