Dear Mr Jesus
I just had to write to you
Something really scared me
When I saw it on the news
A story about a little girl
Beaten black and blue
Jesus thought I'd take this right to you

Dear Mr. Jesus
I don't understand
Why they took her mom and dad away
I know that they don't mean to hit
With wild and angry hands
Tell them just how big they are I pray
Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

Dear Mr. Jesus
They say that she may die
Oh I hope the doctors stop the pain
I know that you could save her
And take her up to the sky
So she would never have to hurt again
Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

Dear Mr. Jesus
Please tell me what to do
And please don't tell my daddy
But my mommy hits me, too

Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm
Please don't let them hurt your children
They need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm
