Dear Mr. Jesus

From the very first time I heard it a few years ago, this song has always brought me to tears instantly. With the video added to it though, it completely tears my heart to pieces. There just has to be a way to educate people. Can one person make a difference?

For those people who are unable to hear the song that goes with this video, following are the lyrics.

Dear Mr. Jesus
words and music by Richard Klender

Dear Mr. Jesus, I just had to write to you
Something really scared me, when I saw it on the news
A story ’bout 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…

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…

    this song is such an inspiring song. it brings me to tears each time i hear it, it never fails, even if i am driving down the road when this song comes on i cry for a while. abuse is nothing to mess with. for all the people out there who are in abusive situations, always know, THERE IS HOPE! believe me i know, i am a survivor of an abusive relationship!
