How long

How long, O God
  will we ignore the cries
Your poor people
  our poor people
Made from one family
  created in your image
Women, men, children
  who help us see beyond
The veil of this thin life
  revealed and yet not seen
So we lift our cries
  and hope for notice
Pray for a world to change
  waiting for care and compassion
Let us hear
  let us turn and care
Because if our turn comes
  we will wish for it
Yet if we have not done
  there will be no one to hear
