some of the kings and queens in Haiti

Little hands, shoeless feet,

Lonely eyes looking back at me.

Will we leave behind the innocent to grieve?

On their own, on the run when their lives have only begun

These could be our daughters and our sons.

And just like a drum I can hear their hearts beating

I know my God won’t let them be defeated

Every child has a dream to belong and be loved.

Boys become kings, girls will be queens

Wrapped in Your majesty

When we love, when we love the least of these.

Then they will be brave and free

Shout your name in victory

When we love when we love the least of these

When we love the least of these.

Break our hearts once again

Help us to remember when

We were only children hoping for a friend

Won’t you look around these are the lives that the world has forgotten

Waiting for doors of our hearts and our homes to open

IMG_0703

If not us who will be like Jesus

To the least of these

If not us tell me who will be like Jesus

Like Jesus to the least of these

IMG_0713

Boys become kings, girls will be queens

Wrapped in your majesty

When we love, when we love the least of these.

    Oh, Jessica, I love this song, and it fuels my sparking passion for adoption, most definitely. Thank you for sharing these darling pictures.

    They are beautiful.
