Who will cry for the Orphan Child

Who will cry for the orphan boy who is lonely all his years?
Who will cry for the orphan girl whose eyes have run out of tears?

Who will give an orphan child the things they really need,
Like home and love and family, yes, who will hear and heed?

Who will love an orphan child, the Bible says we should?
Who will give an orphan child a loving home for good?

Who will love an orphan child, the Bible says we must.
Who will give an orphan chilod a sense of belonging and trust?

We live in a culture that has it all, but tells us we need more.
Will orphans without home or love ever see our door?

What use is faith that fails to love the orphans as we should?
God gave us wealth so we could give an orphan a home for good.

What use is faith that says to a child who desperately needs a home,
"Go in peace, be warmed and filled", but then leaves her all alone?

How can I tell an orphan child of a God who loves them so,
They'll never understand God's love, if my love they don't know.

How can I tell them Jesus died to take away their sin?
They won't care that Jesus died when they are dying within.

God said we're all orphans here, and sent Jesus to pave the way,
And if we accept His gift of love, we're a child of God today.

Adoption is God's proof of love according to His Word,
Adoption is the word of love the orphan has never heard.

Adoption is God's gift of love, the love that we all need,
Adoption is the orphans cry, but who will hear and heed?

Who will cry for the orphan child, it's something they cannot do,
But, who will cry for the orphan child? If the can't, Will you?
