Lyrics
Matthew 25:35-46
Another day in Nigeria the children beg for bread
The crops failed, the well ran dry
When they lost the watershed

A baby dies, its mother cries the children gather ‘round
They’re wondering what the day will bring
Will the be the next one found

Do you dare to look into their hollow eyes

In the crowded sheds the children lay their heads
To escape the Haitian heat
The hunger pains drive them to the street
Wondering if today they’ll eat some found food in the refuse heap
Others find disease
Some find it harder just to live
When they can die with ease

Do you dare to look into their hollow eyes

The least of these is hungry
The least of these is sick
The least of these is needs clothing
The least of these is needs drink
The least of these knows sorrow
The least of these knows grief
The least of these suffers pain and Jesus is His name
M.U.
