How can we look, and not be moved

by lives that end and eyes that plead,

where parents cry while families part

amid their last despairing need.

Once we were distanced from the ones

that suffered while we stood to stare.

God give the gift of empathy

that we might offer more than prayer.

Verses 3-4 follow

Hymn responding to the Ebola crisis.
