See that old man?
Every woken moment is spent in a drunken stupor,
Nothing is worth living for except for the bottle,
Sleeps on the street and begs for drink money,
But for the grace of God, I could be there too.
See that young man?
He is oblivious to the world around him,
For his eyes only see the visions the drugs,
Allow him, and he believes that's the "cool" way to be,
But for the grace of God, you could be there too.
See that middle aged women?
Or is she young? One can't really tell,
She tries to hide behind her make-up and smile,
As she tries to pick up, yet another client,
But for the grace of God, we could there too.
See that group of scruffy people?
So poor they can't afford to help themselves,
They pick and scrounge to stay alive,
And one has to wonder why,
But for the grace of God, all of us could be there too.
It is really time to care, to help and understand,
It is time to let all of them know,
That with the grace and love of Almighty God,
They don't have to be there.
