Like A Child

I have downloaded the amazing songs for the Litsemba Church Camps in Swaziland. One song is "Like a Child." It really broke my heart for the children of Swaziland.
The Lyrics are by Glenn Marais.

Just 6 years olf and all along in the world,
a child am I, a child am I
I lay my brother and sister to sleep, cry alone.
At where we be, a child am I

Where is the world, when we cry in the night?
Where is the world, when our parents are dying?
Where is the world, when we can save a life, by reaching out, Just like a child.

Do we close out eyes to the pain in the world,
A child cries out, a child cries out.
One reaches out and another joins in,
Together we can, all begin, a child cries out.

Where is the world, when we cry in the night?
Where is the world, when our parents are dying?
Where is the world, when we can save a life, by reaching out, Just like a child.

Do you go to sleep at night, warm without a care?
Can you go to sleep tonight, and know that, somewhere, a child is all alone, all alone!
