lyrics

Children of the Dust
*
For how long can we close our eyes
As another child dies?
For how long can we turn away
And don’t do and don’t say?
*
In a far away land
That is hostile to man
Children are crying in the dust
Children are dying in the dust
Children are buried in the dust
For a lack of clean water
*
So please don’t turn away
No, don’t you turn away
Help them live another day
Please help them live another day
All they need is clean water
*
So much sorrow, so much sorrow
But if you’d care
They will see tomorrow
*
For how long can we close our eyes
As another child dies?
For how long can we turn away
And don’t do and don’t say?
*
Thousand’s silently die
Can you hear their last cries?
They are children without a voice
Their lives in pain they have no choice
No they have nothing to rejoice
*
Just give them clean water
I’m saying for Christs sake
When will the world awake?
They drink from a polluted well
Where cholera and poison dwells
Their lives are just a living hell
Help them drink clean water
*
So please don’t turn away
No, don’t you turn away
Help them live another day
Please help them live another day
All they need is water
Just give them clean water
*
So please don’t turn away
No, don’t you turn away
Help them live another day
Please help them live another day
All they need is water
Just give them clean water
*
