about

inspired by the Somali refugees in San Antonio, among many other refugee groups in our city - Burmese, Berundi, Iraqis, Iranians.... Why on an adoption CD? Because we're called to love the orphan, widows and the strangers among us.

lyrics

Leaving behind everything she knew
Now all alone with a strange new view
Remembering war and the dust of her land
No one here knows the reason she ran

She's a stranger among us
She is torn between the old and new
While her past was unbearable
It was familiar to her
She's a stranger among us
And she's longing to be seen and heard
While this land makes its promises
Hope's still foreign to her

The hustle and bustle of American stride
Busily passes the woman who's eyes
Are hidden behind the colorful scarf
If only we'd stop and see to her heart

She has nerves of steel
And heart of gold
But only Jesus can save her soul
Could we be so bold
Or have our hearts grown cold
'Cause she lives in our city
And she's waiting on hope
