I can only imagine that once I was born

Therefore can I remember that I used to have parents

But why can’t I remember when all these happened

Our lives in this world were near to the grave

My mother, my father were nowhere to be found

Before I realized, I was all alone

I tried to call, but no one answered

Our lives in this world were near to the grave

Everybody around us, saw us nothing

They called us “less fortunate”, while others “the cursed ones”

They looked at us as rubbish  as they gave out their “cat calls”

Our lives in this world were near to the grave

Brian Kasyoki Today!

We thank our God for sending you His servant

You saved our lives from the valley of death

We are now enjoying, hoping for the future

Our lives in this world are no longer next to the grave

Education we are getting a way to a better future

Good food we eat to maintain a good body

Plenty water we are having, cleanliness we are blessed

Our lives in this world are no longer next to the grave

The glittering faces you see, show the future we will live

The good health we have, an indication of a stable future to live

The evident cleanliness you see, welcomes a clear future for us

Our lives in this world are no longer next to the grave

We don’t know how to thank-you for the good work you did

But we know now our loving God is going to hear our cries

Because down deep from our hearts we are much sobbing with thanksgiving

Our lives in this world are no longer next to the grave
