I love this Steve Green song …
 
Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eye.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?
On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize –people need the Lord?
We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What would be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who’s lost?
Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.
People need the Lord
 
It came resounding through my wakefulness this morning.
A three-year old boy is dead.
His mother killed him.
His siblings will now live without their brother and their mother.
A family too is bereaved with no answer or sensibility.
People need the Lord.
Anger, unbelief, sympathy, compassion, hurt flood the mental and emotional cavities of our being.  The huge ‘why’ surfaces to the top. 
Blame, contempt, damnation, and judgment seeps through our humanity.
People need the Lord.
Children are a heritage from the Lord, a reward from Him.
God bless the soul of the young child.
God bless the soul of the mother.
God bless the family.
God bless us all.
People need the Lord.
