Our Children - Sally Rogers

    My brother says to me there is no hope in this world
    Why bring children in this world of sorrow?
    This globe of bombs and war
    Is no place for a child
    This deadly race brings promise of a grim tomorrow

    But in our children lies the wisdom of the years
    And our children reflect our loves and hopes and fears
    And we leave nothing on this planet when we're gone
    But our children

    Too many children grow up in a home where there's no love
    Precious products of a moment's careless pleasure
    And parents who were battered children
    Strike out in their turn
    Destroying love and maiming this life's greatest treasure

    [Repeat Chorus]

    Children who are wanted and children who are loved
    Can learn to love and cherish life and one another
    And though tomorrow may seem grim with the predicaments we're in
    The light of hope still glimmers on when there are children

    [Repeat Chorus]

    For we are children
    We seek the wisdom of the years
    We are children
    And we have loves and hopes and fears
    We leave nothing on this planet
    But what we've done
    For all children
