She walks with a beat as she works the
Street in the dead of night
She's been laid off and her kids must eat
And his money's right
A world away beneath the sun the earth
Goes dry
A hungry starving people search for
Food as their babies die

(Chorus)
I tell you, we can touch the world
When we meet them all at their need
We can touch them where they are
Help them to believe, touch the world

He's on the pipe and he's got the shakes
As he takes a puff
Their badges shine and there's no
Escape as they lock him up
Fourteen years old and without love the
Girl is livin' wild
How can it be a four month pregnancy
And she's the child

(Chorus)
I tell you, we can touch the world
When we meet them all at their need
We can touch them where they are
Help them to believe, toucht the world

(Bridge)
Round the globe people need to know
The answer's theirs today, someway
Somehow
We must let them know that God gives
Hope and Jesus is the way
