WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO HIM?

Perhaps I'm not enlightened,

 Or surely just a fool

Who believes in "myths" about justice

 And quaint ideas like the "golden rule."

 

It's hard for me to conceive

 That the mighty plan

Of a modern man

 By a child can be thwarted.

But it's harder still

 To understand

Why they're battered, abused or aborted.

 

Perhaps I missed the logic,

 Or is it circumstance or whim?

But when we stand before God's throne

 What shall we say to him?

 

TO SPEAK FOR THE CHILDREN

 

I must speak, though I have not the courage.

I must speak, though reluctant am I.

I must speak of the helpless who suffer,

I must speak for the children who die.

 

If I must stand for the friendless

If I must fight for the helpless

If I must speak for the voiceless

If I must be the one

I shall be that one.

 

I shall speak though I have not the courage,

I shall speak, or be willing to try,

To speak for the helpless who suffer,

To speak for the children who die.
