All For One

Horror after the event

The nation claps applause

And government begins inquiry

Into what and why and cause

A child neglected left unloved

Unfed and all alone

What can we do what can we do

This horror to atone


In story form the Lord describes

A sheep lost on a hill

And how the shepherd leaves the flock

And searches long until

He finds that lost and lonely one

And lifts it on his head

I’ve found the sheep that we had lost

Nothing lost to dread


So we must put our money

Where our mouth is for a change

Supporting social service

For young and old and strange

I am my brother’s keeper

Society a flock

If one is lost then we are lost

Christ Jesus is the rock
