One Less Lyrics

by Matthew West

Theres a child
Been abandoned on the street
Now shes waiting for someone to be her miracle

Theres a wife
Somewhere halfway around the world
Begging God for a little girl she can call her own

Well, worlds collide, and colors fade
And a man and wife brought their little girl home today

And theres one less
One less
One less broken heart in the world tonight

We are called
To the widows and the orphans
But its easy to ignore their silent cries

Oh, but every single time
Somebody reaches into the darkness
Makes a choice to help the helpless
They let mercy save a life

Well the truth is we are all the orphans
But love has left the ninety-nine
Just to find the one

One less night alone
One less child without a home
One less birthday gone forgotten
One more soul rising from the bottom

One less
One less
Theres one less broken heart in the world tonight
