LaughingLlama: This isn't my first attempt at writing song, but one of the only ones I have deemed good enough for the whole entire world to see. Also, this song has a kind of Casting Crowns feeling to it. If you don't know who Casting Crowns is/heard about them, but never listened to their music, GO YOUTUBE THEM CUZ THEYARE AWESOME!

"These Are The Children"

[Verse 1:] I see their hopeless faces, peering through dirty glass

I hear their cries of hunger, their pleading for help

And I wonder how all those people, passing by on the streets

Can be so blind to not see them, so deaf to not hear them

[Chorus:] These are the children, they are the future

They are the sounds of all the lost crying out for salvation

They are the broken and abandoned,

The forgotten and neglected

They are the ones who need Your love

[Verse 2:] There's a girl hiding in the shadows, face buried in her hands

Can't stop the tears, she's too weak

There's a man on the streets troubled eyes, downcast expression

Can't decide whether to tell the truth or a lie

[Chorus:] These are the children, they are the future

They are the sounds of all the lost crying out for salvation

They are the broken and abandoned

The forgotten and neglected

They are the ones who need Your love

[Verse 3:] I see the men in the churches,

Face-down, on the ground, on their knees

And they're crying out, "Dear Jesus,

Won't You come heal the broken spirits?"

But they're the ones who need Your guidance more than anything

[Bridge:] We are the Christians, the 'fortunate'

So why are we not giving out Your grace to the hopeless?

They are the unknown, the ignored, the alone

So why aren't they being told of Your story?

[Chorus:] These are the children, they are the future

They are the sounds of all the lost crying out for salvation

They are the broken and abandoned,

The forgotten and neglected

They are the ones who need Your love
