Goodnight Haiti


In the world of the haves verses the have not.
In a time where there seem to very little hope.
In a country where poverty is the meal that many set
down too.

Should we all say a little prayer
before we go to sleep.
And cry for the children that lives in a place.
Where the might Earth shakes, and their homes of
disappear into the rubble

Say a little pray for God to reach down.
gather their souls like a mother hen gathering her chicks before
a coming storm.
Put them in a safe place far removed from the death in the street.

Pray for the Lord to help them find away out of the darkness and
into the light.
So say a little prayer for all the little children before they go to sleep.

Say a little prayer for all the children that can't.
So God will take their souls in his hands to keep.
Goodnight Haiti
