It doesn’t make sense to me
By Joanna White
November 14, 2012

Waiting children need a family.
Why don’t the Christians see
These are the least of these.
Oh, it’s such a tragedy.

Lord, open eyes to see
Our own responsibility.
Give us an urgency.
This IS about eternity.

We have rooms that sit empty
Or house our extra T.V.
Oh the frivolity.
That’s where a child could be.

Jesus died upon a tree
Out of love for humanity.
Who will love to that degree?
Who will be His hands and feet?

Yes we can give them money
But it won’t give them identity.
They need their own family
Who will love them dearly.

What about you and me?
Will we remain in apathy
Caught in selfish hypocricy
Or will we love sacrificially?

Waiting children need a family.
Why don’t the Christians see
These are the least of these.
Oh, it’s such a tragedy…

It doesn’t make sense to me.
No, it doesn’t make sense to me.

Jesus died upon a tree
Out of love for humanity.
Who will love to that degree?
Who will be His hands and feet?
