From the recording What Will You Do?
On a trip to Lima Peru, I visited a small community living on a dirt hillside. Their homes, shacks really, made of tin and scraps of wood were stacked upon top of each other. A young girl, named Brenda was playing on the dusty hillside, kicked a soccer ball. I chatted with her a little. She was a sponsored child in Compassion International's program. I asked her how the program had changed her life. She told me that it was there, in the dusty little hillside church that Compassion partnered with, that she found Jesus. I thought about that...finding Jesus in the dirt in Peru. Who knew!?
VERSE 1Jesus lives in a bamboo hut outside of Lima Peru.And His holy feet walk earthen sod, under a patched tin roofI saw Him in a girl named Brenda, she found in Him in the dirt.Yeah, all this time, Jesus in Lima, forgotten by the world...
CHORUSWhat will you do?Will you open up your heart to meet their needs?They count on you.Oh what will you do?To be Jesus to the least of these? The least of these...VERSE 2A cup of water in His name does more than quench a thirst.And you know that he would do the same if roles were just reversed.So be the hands that offer mercy, be the feet that go.Be the voice that speaks up for them, now that you know...CHORUSWhat will you do?Will you open up your heart to meet their needs?They count on you.Oh what will you do?To be Jesus to the least of these...the least of these. (x2)
What will you do for the least of these?
