Her parents never took the young girl to church
Never spoke of His name
Never read her His word
Two non-believers walking lost in this world
Took their baby with them
What a sad little girl

Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
Never wanted to play
Or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch
While her mom fell asleep
And her daddy went out

And the drinking and the fighting
Just got worse every night
Behind their couch she'd be hiding
Oh what a sad little life
And like it always does, the bad just got worse
With every slap and every curse
Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
Used a gun on her mama and then took his life

And some people from the city took the girl far away
To a new mom and a new dad
Kisses and hugs everyday
Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
And a small little girl
Stared a picture of Him

She said I know that man up there on that cross
I don't know His name
But I know He got off
He was there in my old house
And held me close to His side
As I hid there behind our couch
The night that my parents died

    Her parents never took the young girl to church.
    Never spoke of His name.
    Never read her His word.
    Two non-believers walking lost in this world.
    Took their baby with them.
    What a sad little girl.

    Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs.
    Never wanted to play.
    Or give kisses and hugs.
    She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch.
    While her mom fell asleep.
    And her daddy went out.

    And the drinking and the fighting.
    Just got worse every night.
    Behind their couch she'd be hiding.
    Oh what a sad little life.
    And like it always does, the bad just got worse.
    With every slap and every curse.
    Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night.
    Used a gun on her mama and then took his life.

    And some people from the city took the girl far away.
    To a new mom and a new dad.
    Kisses and hugs everyday.
    Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in.
    And a small little girl.

    She said I know that man up there on that cross.
    I don't know His name.
    But I know He got off.
    He was there in my old house.
    And held me close to His side.
    As I hid there behind our couch.
    The night that my parents died.

    This song holds so much for those of us who work in the medical field. I am not a doctor or nurse but i work closely with them and see what parents can do to their little ones.. My heart hurts when i know that a baby or a child no matter the age has been admitted for abuse. Maybe playing this song while they are standing in front of the judge might just open their eyes.

    i think that not one person should have to go through all that pain but when they do i hope they have somebody there to hold them when they do.
