From Children's Cup:
"A land once divided by poverty and shame, will now be united to praise God’s name
For those are the faces of Christ who died, to now bring redemption to the lost in doubt
With a heart of compassion and the purest flame, their hearts will burn brighter
THROUGH AIDS AND PAIN
For the lost and forgotten, they surely will rise.
To awaken a nation with soverign sound
We have seen, we have heard, we have felt a call that’s greater than our yearn
We reach out with God’s touch to heal a land that’s known
NO GREATER LOVE
If the poor is love, You are with them
If their shame is grace, You are with them
If their pain bleeds faith, You are with them
AND WE WILL RESPOND…we will respond…
As the tears of the widow, they fall to the ground
She embraces the orphan who now is found.
For Jesus has given his hands and feet to reach this nation and those in need."
