It doesn’t make sense to me

By Joanna White

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?
