Song Description

Taken from Psalm 72:12-14. Who will help the needy? I will help the needy.

Story Behind the Song

My daughter raised funds to travel and serve at a Kenya orphanage. The orphanage claims Psalm 72;12-14 as there verse. As I saw the pcitures on their website and read that Pslam--I was wrecked. I heard a song, and this is what came out. I have two versions, one guitar/male vocal and one piano/female vocal

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very lovely melody and a very important message. Vocals are lovely and the lyrics have a lot to say. Love the piano accompaniment. A strong song with only vocals and piano. Also really like the harmonies.

    - Kathy Myers

The vocal is among the best I have heard here.
The lyrics have substance and challenge.
I'm a sucker for a piano ballad.

    - Phil Oakwood
Lyrics

There are distant lands where love is seldom shown
Where people are abandoned and unknown
There is a famine for peace and hope
And places love still needs to go

As the poor cry out, who will hear their call
Who will help the needy who have no one at all
Who will hold the child who's orphaned and alone
Love still has ten thousand miles to go

God hears the call from these distant lands
He will love them, but through our willing hands
The love of God is known as it is shown
When we touch the faces ten thousand miles from home

As the poor cry out, I will hear their call
I will help the needy who have no one at all
I will hold the child who's orphaned and alone
Because love still has ten thousand miles to go

Love still has ten thousand miles
Ten thousand miles
Ten thousand miles
Ten thousand miles..... to go
