"CONSIDER THE POOR"

Verse 1
The cries of the children in war-torn lands,
The cries of the desperate with outstretched hands,
The cries of the poor and needy,
The sick and the lost,
They're looking for answers
Whatever the cost,

Whatever the cost.

Verse 2
Is your heart open, or have you closed the door?
Do people go hungry while you feed yourself more?
Have you taken time to wipe their tears away?
What part of your life have you given tod-ay?

Chorus 1
Oh, consider the poor,
The lost & the blind,
Let's give them some hope
And help them to find
God's sweet love
That came from above
To give us His all,
To give us His love-,
To give us His love-.

Verse 2
Lord, use my eyes and help me to see;
Take my hands, too, and touch others through me.
Please guide my feet to fulfill You command,
And take Your love to the poor of the lan-d.

Chorus 2
Help me consider the poor,
The lost & the blind,
To give them some hope
And help them to find,
Oh, Your sweet love
That came down from above,
That heals and revives
Their desperate lives.

Bridge
I hear Your voice saying to me,
"When you cared for them,
You're caring for Me,
For Me,--oh, for Me.

Lead break: ---[9x]]

Chorus 3
Wanna consider the poor,
The lost & the blind,
I wanna give them some hope,
And help them to find,
Jesus, Your sweet love.
Help me consider the poor.
