TAKE THESE HANDS –
Music and Lyrics by Carlene Thissen Copyright 2006

O o o o o o oo
O o ooooooo ooo
O o o o o o o ooo
O o Oooo oooo

CHORUS: Take these hands
Take These hands
Children of the sun, we are one

VERSE 1:

People suffering, struggling
In the dark I listen to them cry
Poor side of the river, desert, or sea,
Born on the poor side of the line

Little one, my little child,
You are four years old.
Tiny hands will soon be working
All my dreams are cold.

CHORUS: Take these hands
Take These hands
Children of the sun, we are one

VERSE 2:

What will I remember?
The heat the dirt, --- the color of the sky
House is so poor, there’s nothing for our meals
The heat the dirt, we barely survive

There’s a lady, with a lamp,
Will she welcome us?
We are poor, but we’ll work hard,
Will she welcome us?

CHORUS: Take these hands
Take These hands
Children of the sun, we are one

VERSE 3

I go dark in the morning,
Come home in the darkness of the night
Days in the fields are long, so long,
Sun burning down from the sky.

Little one, my little child
Thank our God above
You're safe, we are here,
Sleep well, my love.

FINAL CHORUS/CODA: Take these hands
Take These hands
Children of the sun, we are one.
Take these hands
Take These hands
Children of the sun, we are one.
Children of the sun…….. we are one.

O o o o o o oo
O o ooooooo ooo
O o o o o o o ooo
O o Oooo oooo
