Hope For Haiti

Words and Music by Kevin Coates

Hope for Haiti

hope for this world

our brothers and sisters

are all alone

left to die there

do they know we’re listening

that we know they’re broken

with no place to call home


News this morning

rips me open

cuts completely

to the bone

lives in pieces

torn apart without warning

left to dig for

the ones who are gone


BRIDGE:

Tell them the world is watching

and reaching out to touch them

wishing to share their burden

trying to bring them peace


Hope for Haiti

hope for this world

light through darkness

however small

give them strength now

in this desperate hour

‘cause if there’s hope for Haiti,

there’s hope for us all.


SOLO


BRIDGE


Hope for Haiti

keep them close now

heal their wounded

break their fall

show compassion

hold them closely

‘cause when there’s hope for Haiti,

there’s hope for us all.

when there’s hope for Haiti,

there’s hope for us all

when there’s hope for Haiti

there’s hope for us all.
