We Care Ministries is a ministry begun by Larry and (my cousin) Peggy West with the focus on teaching the gospel of Christ and with the goals of saving souls, training soul winners, and leaving churches edified. In 2010 I wrote the melody and words of this song for Peggy’s birthday. Although Peggy is a much better arranger than I, as testified by some of her published arrangements (The Greatest Commands, What Will You Do With Jesus, etc.), I arranged the song for her birthday in 2011.
I see a man who is in need of help.
I see that he is not aware of Jesus.
He's poor in spirit and he's out of love.
For him to live that way is simply needless.
We Care because we must.
We Care because of Jesus.
We Care because we trust
In Jesus' pow'r to save us.
Oh, there are many people in the world
Who live, but of the love of God are heedless.
It is my obligation, up to me, To show them just how much they're needing Jesus.
I once was without Jesus, lost in sin,
I came to him and then he changed my story.
I want to tell the world. I want to shout
I'm saved. And now I will reflect his glory.
