As I kept myself busy and hurried through the day
I passed a group of children, happy and carefree at play
But one child was alone-he was so small and frail
The tears he had cried left a dirt stained trail
Again I looked up toward the sky so blue
And again I asked, Lord, what shall I do?
The answer came down like a bolt from above
Just give him love, Just give him love
I did all I could to calm the child's fear, give him courage and make him feel safe
And then like before, I picked myself up and went on my way
