    How I'd be happy to help
    to you, brothers who suffer,
    oh, how I would be happy if I were given the words
    that fill with enthusiasm,
    to be given the words which move the world,
    how I'd wish for people to listen, to hear,
    these politicians, rulers, people with power,
    the mighty ones of the world to gain grace
    to see, to feel,
    to understand the pain of a mother
    whose child is dying of hunger,
    the pain of a father whose princess
    longs for a drop of water.

    Oh, wake me up tomorrow
    and tell me they've understood,
    wake me up and tell me the new day is coming,
    day of light that doesn't know of sunset,
    day ruled by Christ.
    What we did to the smallest ones,
    we dif to Him, and to ourselves!

    Indeed, I would…I would if I could,
    give all the money of the world
    for a single drop of mercy
    to the little ones!

    It's value is more than that of pearls and gold,
    worth more than all the treasures
    of this grand world,
    and the whole universe is worthless compared to it.!

    Oh, wake me up tomorrow
    and tell me that they understand!

    Thank you, Nikola. I'm often reminded that we are Christ's hands and feet as we live for Him in the dark places of the earth in the midst of rebellion and violence. Your poem reminds me that we are also in those places as a longing of His heart which is important to Him. Malachi 3:16, Psalm 68:18
