The World's Child

Oh child your suffering should shame us
You are not just one nation’s offspring
You are the world’s child

When one child is devastated by illness
When one child goes hungry
When one child is abused
Every nation should feel sorrow

Boundaries, political or religious beliefs
Should not stop humanity from
Aiding the world’s smallest citizens
Our future is in our children
We must do everything we can
To give the best for them
That they might have a tomorrow

Precious child your tears break our hearts
We must not ignore your cries
Everything we have means nothing
If it is at the cost of a child
