Arise

While we sleep, the children die.
We waste their love with our lives
Chase their peace away
and their dreams to early graves.

While we sleep, the children die.
We feed them stones for bread
Give them ashes for joy
And lie to them that dark is light.

While we sleep the children die.
Arise. Cry out into the night.*

*Jeremiah 2:19
