"HOMELESS PEOPLE"

Did you ever stop and wonder what it is,
What we're all here for?
Could it be just for an existence?
There must be something more.

Verse 1
Walking home late one night
Down an alley road,
I met a little boy who was barely dressed,
Shivering in the cold.
A look of pain, a tear in his eye,
He held out his hand,
And in a trembling voice he softly spoke,
And I could hardly understand,
He said...
"We ain't got no place to live,
And since I'm the oldest kid,
It's what I've gotta do
To pull my family through.
We could sure use some help from you."

Chorus 1
Have you seen them in our streets?-
Homeless people living there,
Wondering just how long it'll be
'Til someone will really care;
The saddened look on a young girl's face
As she starts crying,
'Cause she's seen all her hopes and dreams,
They are dying.

Verse 2
Children without their fathers,
And mothers all alone,
Doing their best to make from this mess
A place to call home.
The baby cries, and mama sighs
And says through her tears,
"It's the last thing that I need-
Another hungry mouth to feed."
And are we all too blind to see
They need the help of you and me
To lend an ear to their hopeless plight
And give them light in their darkest night?

Chorus 2
Have you seen them in our streets?-
Homeless people living there,
Wondering just how long it'll be
'Til someone will really care;
The saddened look on a young girl's face
As she starts crying,
'Cause she's seen all her hopes and dreams,
Are just dying.

Music break:

Chorus 3
I know what we're here for:
To help these desperate lives,
Let them know that Jesus cares.
And one day,
He'll wipe away their tears.

Chorus 4
I know what we're here for:
To help these desperate lives,
Let them know that Jesus cares.
And one day,
He'll wipe away their tears.
From their ey-- es.
He'll wipe those tears.
