I drive the streets and see
Pain and poverty
People being hurt
The government doesn’t work

All the wealth we have
Who will plead their case?
People being hurt
The Ninth Ward doesn’t work

Gentilly is building back
So many cannot come
People being hurt
Houses dead from debris

Children waiting for school
Adults seeking control
People being hurt
Learning isn’t free

The church is here today
Giving stuff away
Helping those that hurt
So they can live and be

Today the church is at work
Now people have a friend
Jesus sent them here
To care for those who hurt
