The earth moves and quakes

Buildings fall

And cover the buried dead

And with bare hands we seek to find alive

The injured parties

Rescued watered fed


Such devastation

Seeks the human heart

We send our money

Try to play our part

While Russian bombs explode

A heartless kill

We seek to help all injured parties still


We do not see the earthquakes of the soul

But their effects are plain

The broken lives

What can you do to help?

With just bare hands

You can listen for the living sound

And there attend
