Sing

I went to the cinema in 2008 to see the movie, We Are Together, a documentary about The Agape Children’s Orphanage in South Africa. Most of the kids had lost their parents to the HIV/AIDS virus. Their orphanage was burnt down and they went to sing in the US in order to raise money to rebuild. The ability of the children to see past their pain and sing their way out of pain has stayed with me since then.



Sing


And when there is nothing left to do, sing

Sing for your words have power

Powerful, it heals

Powerful, it soothes the broken heart

Powerful, it makes the wounded whole

Powerful, it melts a heart of stone

Powerful, it breaks barriers and the unbreakable

Powerful, it pulls down boundaries

Powerful, it crosses enemy lines

Powerful, it makes a sad soul and a depressed spirit smile

Sing child

Sing for your words have power.
