Sharon Batts – Dear Mr. Jesus lyrics

Dear Mr. Jesus. I just had to write to you.
Something really scared me, when I saw it on the news
A story 'bout a little girl beaten black and blue
Jesus, thought I'd take this right to you
Dear Mr. Jesus, I don't understand
Why they took her mom and dad away
I know that they don't mean to hit with wild and angry hands
Tell them just how big they are I pray

Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

Dear Mr. Jesus, they say that she may die
Oh I hope the doctors stop the pain
I know that you could save her and take her up to the sky
So she would never have to hurt again

Please don't let them hurt your children
Dear Mr. Jesus, please tell me what to do
And please don't tell my daddy
But my mommy hits me too
Please don't let them hurt your children

    My first letter to mr jesus was written when I was 7. First heard this song with the angelic voice during a radiothon to help prevent child abuse when I was 23. I was asked to read poetry I had written. What I contributed paled terribly to what I had contributed. I of course asked for & was given a copy of the song from the radio station. 23 years later the song with the angelic voice still affects me as sadly as it does countless others. Will the song ever become just a distant part of history as so many other wars are?
