Kings and Queens

I first heard this moving song by Audio Adrenaline maybe a few weeks ago.  Ever since, I have wanted to create a video for waiting children with this song in the background.  Awhile ago, an adoption friend of mine was looking for pictures of our adopted children- one from the orphanage and one once in a family/home.  I sent her two.  Today she posted the most amazing video of a before and after of many of the children of families who were going through the adoption process at the same time as us.  And wouldn't you know...it had this song in the background.  It was perfect!  It moved me to tears.  I had wanted to write the lyrics on my blog and I am glad I didn't get around to it until now.  So enjoy the lyrics and if you  haven't seen it yet, please check out the video and turn your volume UP and REALLY listen.  I hope this song moves your heart  like it moves mine.

KINGS AND QUEENS- Song Lyrics

Little hands, shoeless feet, lonely eyes looking back at me
Will we leave behind the innocent too brief
On their own, on the run when their lives have only begun
These could be our daughters and our sons
And just like a drum I can hear their hearts beating
I know my God won’t let them be defeated
Every child has a dream to belong and be loved

Chorus:
Boys become kings, girls will be queens
Wrapped in Your majesty 
When we love, when we love the least of these
Then they will be brave and free
Shout your name in victory
When we love when we love the least of these
When we love the least of these

Break our hearts once again
Help us to remember when
We were only children hoping for a friend
Won’t you look around these are the lives that the world has forgotten
Waiting for doors of our hearts and our homes to open

CHORUS

If not us who will be like Jesus
To the least of these
If not us tell me who will be like Jesus
Like Jesus to the least of these


Boys become kings, girls will be queens
Wrapped in your majesty
When we love, when we love the least of these
Then they will be brave and free shout your name in victory
We will love we will love the least of these
We will love the least of these
We will love the least of these
We will love the least of these
We will love the least of these 
We will love the least of these
