When the morning light
tries to hold you tight
you snuggle down inside

But when the day insists
there's no use to resist
just open up and pray

That every move you make
and every breath you take
and every word you say

Will help the ones you love
and those you don't think of
and those who turn away

And if there is a God
and us he's thinking of
well, don't forget to say

That wives and mothers cry
to see their babies die
it happens every day

So God in heaven above
what are you thinking of
is this the way you play

Well, can't you hear them weep
now children mind your feet
maybe God has gone to sleep
