I see so much unhappiness and tears `Lord
So many children hurting and alone
I want so much to take away their fears Lord
And bring them to wa loe they've never known
And would it help if I could take your cross Lord
And share with you their misery and pain
Perhaps I could return what they have lost Lord
And bring them back to happiness again

And there are children living far away Lord
Where wars and famines take away their bread
While I enjoy a meal three times a day Lord
Their little bodies waste until they're dead
O hold those children very close to you Lord
And somehow make their little lives worthwhile
You know there's nothing that I would not do Lord
If I could help just one of them to smile

But there will be a better world tomorrow
When Love will reign and everyone will share
With those who live in need and those in sorrow
Who never thought that anyone would care
You say that little children are in heaven
For such as these such happiness should be
And though I know how little I have given
Perhaps one day a child will welcome me.
