Listen

Can you hear the children cry?
Why you ask, oh why?
Hunger, bruises, suffering from land
to land
Abuse, wars, fear -
No one to extend a hand
Tears, broken hearts and broken bones
Do you care enough to let them know
they are not all alone
Do you pray that man's cruelty
to man will cease
O has the world grown callous
to the voices for peace
Can you hear the children cry?
Need you ask why, oh why.
