When the children cry
will you just turn with a deaf ear
so you will not have to hear
will you comfort their fear
through each and every nightmare
with passion that you care

When it's hard for someone to try
will you reach out your hand
with times of a weary season
or just close your eyes
so you won't have to see
and leave them all alone there
or bring them a piece of paradise

When you feel another heart die
will you comfort through the pain
or will you just turn away
without even asking why
to leave them there only in despair
or will wipe their tears to dry

Will you only need a reason
to help another when they fall
to answer their prayers when they call
and do what Creator expects from us all
to brighten up another's day
and show that together we'll stand
where love will always remain
