See The Beauty

In 2008 I went to Bangladesh with Global Care to visit an orphanage in the rural village of Horintana. It was an incredible journey where I met some amazing people, not least the children . I’m humbled and grateful to have been given the opportunity.


I see the beauty in your eyes
I feel hope inside your smile
But the pain you know inside is more than a dream
I feel the life inside your heart
I hear the music in your laugh
But the innocence you show is not what it seems
The world says you’re one of a million
But to me you are one in a million

You are a diamond in the rough
You are a song that needs lifting up
You are a flower in the rain
You are a child and you have a name

I’ll run with you in your dreams
And I will hear you when you scream
When you have no voice I’ll speak out for you
I’ll stand with you when you stand
And I will help you raise your hand
When you’re denied a choice I will stand for you

(Ending)
And just because we can’t do it all
It doesn’t mean that we can do nothing at all
We can change this world one life at a time
