my son Matthew pointed out something as we were listening to this via last.fm
if you listen to this song, it shows how even the worse of the worsed can still turn twards jesus.
where did the children go. they are being consumed by the devil.
god bless you last.fm

theres a story about a land owner who gave the same rate of pay to those who started work at 2:00 pm as he did to those how started at 8:00am ,, those who are late will get the reward also,, so lets not be part of the problem
"Two non-believers walking lost in this world
Took their baby with them
What a sad little girl
Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs"
^That's the bit that got to me. That's all. Just seemed a little slighted.
The story and the song itself I have no problem with. A little girl with a bad upbringing is saved by the love of christ and lives happily ever after with a religious family. Not my personal belief system but fair enough. Nice story.
All i'm saying is that it does make out the people in this song that don't believe/worship jesus seem evil and those that do to be saints. That's all.
This song is about a little girl living in an abusive and depressing home. This is everyday life for many children in America. Jesus who suffers not the little children was watching out for her even when she didn't realize who He is. This song isn't a slam against non-believers.
@jayms_wisdom; take your meds!! Wow, how the hell did you get all that from this song? I didn't hear anywhere in that song that if you don't believe in Jesus your a drunk/drug addict waste of space parent. Get a grip on reality:)
This song is messed up. I'm ok with religion but seriously this is messed. Basicly implies that not believing in Jesus makes you a drunk/drug addict waste of space parent. I'm not religious and i find this vaguely offensive.
Still its a nice song and a (sort of) happy story. I just wish it made non-Christians seem less like scum.
Her first day of Sunday school her teacher walked in,
And a small little girl stared at a picture of Him.
She said, "I know that Man up there on that cross,
I don't know His name, but I know He got off,
'Cause He was there in my old house
AND HELD ME CLOSE TO HIS SIDE,
AS I HID THERE BEHIND OUR COUCH,
The night that my parents died . . ."
Great song!! Makes people think about life! Everyday this happens to children all over the world and many people are dumb founded about it. Children should never have to be treated that way or any harms way. No matter how the parents were brought up; the parents past should never be past to there children and sometimes it is and that is sad.
