I pray for an end to all poverty
Hope for the poor renewed hope to see
How can we say the economy our number one focus should be
while countless millions in the world live in poverty?
The solutions seem so few
The problem of poverty is great
It’s still not too late
if we commit to sitting down together both government and community
Use your beautiful mind
for solutions to poverty to find
Can we do any less for those losing hope?
For those who no longer can cope?
Can you look into the eyes of a starving child?
Say for you there’s nothing I can do?
No one should have to choose between having their medications or food
No one should have to choose between paying for their rent or food
No one should be sentenced to a life of joy-stealing poverty
Let’s all work together to show we care
Say by our actions, not merely with our words
that for others in need we’ll be there
If those who are able committed to lifting one person out of poverty
take time to think how much more beautiful this world would be
You would help millions new hope to see
From their poverty they would forever be set free
