For Every Child Who Cries At Night

  For every child who cries at night
Alone with shame and pain and fright

For every child who wants so much
To only feel a gentle touch

For the beaten child, who cries in pain 
Whose tears run silent, like the rain

For the child used to satisfy lust 
Who never learns to love or trust

For the child taken from her home
And made to feel so all alone

For the child whose home is just a shell
Where life becomes a living hell

For the child who smiles but cannot feel
Because of scars too deep to heal

For every child who yearns for love 
I hope and pray to God above

To hear your cries and heal you pain
And give you back your life again.
