Before the World can Change

Will it take another tragedy

Before the world can change

Another news sensation of

Catastrophe and pain

The images of children

Orphans crying in the night

Before we finally learn to

Keep on doing what is right?

For in these times of crises

When our lives and hearts are touched

We finally see, we finally hear

We understand so much

And reaching out we give our time

Our money and our things

For comfort to the suffering

And for the joy it brings

Tomorrow when the cameras turn

Will we forget again

Will it take another tragedy

In nakedness and shame

Will it take another tragedy

Before the world can change?

Hope and faith and love

Trusting, sharing, giving, caring

Lifting others up

All the things we know are true

Simple things that we can do

To make the world a home

For every woman, child and man

To every nation, every land

Tomorrow when the cameras turn

Will we forget again

Will it take another tragedy

In nakedness and shame

Will it take another tragedy

Before the world can change?

For in these times of crises

When our lives and hearts are touched

We finally see, we finally hear

We understand so much

And reaching out we give our time

Our money and our things

For comfort to the suffering

And for the joy it brings

Hope and faith and love

Trusting, sharing, giving, caring

Lifting others up

All the things we know are true

Simple things that we can do

To make the world a home

For every woman, child and man

To every nation, every land

All the things we know are true

Simple things that we can do

For every woman, child and man

To every nation, every land
