Sweet Innocence

 
     

 

           

 

When we first heard this song, it really touched home for us in so many many ways. It just pulled at our heart strings and thought it should have it's own page to honour the children who have suffered at the hands of abusers. Our hope is one day this page will not have to be here and that abuse of any kind will not be tolerated. There's no excuse for child abuse. Our hope is you will find the song and lyrics below as touching as we did.

 

Dear Mr. Jesus, I just had to write to you
Something really scared me, when I saw it on the news
A story 'bout a little girl beaten black and blue
Jesus, thought I'd take this right to you

Dear Mr. Jesus, I don't understand
Why they took her mom and dad away
I know that they don't mean to hit with wild and angry hands
Tell them just how big they are I pray

  Please don't let them hurt your children
  We need love and shelter from the storm
  Please don't let them hurt your children
  Won't you keep us safe and warm

Dear Mr. Jesus, they say that she may die
Oh I hope the doctors stop the pain
I know that you could save her and take her up to the sky
So she would never have to hurt again

 
Please don't let them hurt your children
  We need love and shelter from the storm
  Please don't let them hurt your children
  Won't you keep us safe and warm


Dear Mr. Jesus, please tell me what to do
And please don't tell my daddy
But my mommy hits me, too.

Please don't let them hurt your children
  We need love and shelter from the storm
  Please don't let them hurt your children
  Won't you keep us safe and warm
