Every Child

Dr. Tze of the Global Child Health Society" asked Raffi to write a song for the health of the world's children qand Raffi responded with this song:

Every child, every child, is a child of the universe
Here to sing, here to sing, a song of beauty and grace
Here to love, here to love, like a flower out to bloom
Every boy and girl a blessing and a joy

Every child, every child, of man and woman born
Fed with love, fed with love, in the milk that's mother's own
A healthy child, healthy child, as the dance of life unfolds
Every child in the family, safe and warm

Dreams of children free to fly
Free of hunger, and war
Clean flowing water and air to share
With dolphins and elephants and whales all around

Every child, every child, dreams of peace in this world
Wants a home, wants a home, and a gentle hand to hold
To provide, to provide, room to grow and to belong
In the loving village of human kindness

~From the album: Raffi Radio 1995

Don't you just adore that? I love it. I don't much care for the rest of the album but highly recommend this particular song.

Thank you so much for taking the time out to write all of this down! I will be referring back to it frequently!
