The cost of caring
People are so hungry, Lord; but food fails to satisfy
Many children are crying Lord, but people pass them by
All the world is hurting, Lord; but, what am I to do
Endless are the sighs that I keep sending up to You
Some have been so broken, Lord; and many do not care
Countless are the needy, Lord; but many will not share
We are a very wealthy world but many are so poor
Tell me why, my dearest Lord, I can't take it any more.
why don't those who have enough reach out to those in need
Why don't the wealthy surprise us all by letting go of greed
There shouldn't be a hungry soul or a child who cannot smile
What would it cost if everyone would stop and care awhile?
