People of the World

By Maggie Wheeler


Lyrics


These are the people of the world
Driven by belief
Stricken by grief
Yearning for relief

These are the people of the world

Walking in grace
At their own pace
Through what they must face

These are the people of the world

In fire and flood
In ashes and mud
Lying in blood

These are the people of the world

Then what you gonna do
If all of it is true?
Tell me what you gonna do
If it happens to you?

These are the people of the world

Planting a seed
Aching with need
Starved out by greed

These are the people of the world

Huddling for heat
Wrapping their feet
Sleeping in the street

These are the people of the world

In fire and flood
In ashes and mud
Lying in blood

These are the people of the world

Then what you gonna do
If all of it is true?
Tell me what you gonna do
If it happens to you?

These are the people of the world

Oh can you hear them crying?
What you gonna do, what you gonna do?
What you gonna do, what you gonna do?

These are the people of the world

Tossed to the wind
No family or friend
Crying
When will it end?
When will it end?

Notes


Honoring our pain for the world is what this song does, with its cry of grief and outrage for the suffering people of the world. It’s a wake up call. What you gonna do?
