Dear Mr Jesus (Sharon Batts)

Warning: crude images.

Christmas time is not a happy time for everyone. This video has a wider significance. If you know someone in trouble please help them in any way you can. There is a child in everyone of us, no matter what the age... Thank you for watching this video. God Bless you.

In this song, a child decides to write a letter to get help for the abused victim and begins by writing "Dear Mr. President". Instinctively realizing that even a president cannot stop this problem, the child appeals to the highest authority, Jesus, with a heartrending plea: "Please don't let them hurt Your children".

Thanks to the support of thousands of radio stations worldwide and millions of radio listeners, "Dear Mr. Jesus" became one of the most requested songs ever in the history of radio, receiving airplay on every format, creating an overwhelming national awareness of child abuse.

Dear Mr Jesus I just had to write to you
Something really scared me when I saw it on the news
A story 'bout a little girl beaten black and blue
Jesus, (I) thought I'd take this right to you

Dear Mr Jesus I don't understand
Why they took her Mom and Dad away
I know that they don't mean to hit with wild and angry hands
Tell them just how big they are I pray

Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

Dear Mr Jesus they say that she may die
Oh I hope the doctors stop the pain
I know that you could save her and take her up to the sky
So she would never have to hurt again

Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

Dear Mr Jesus please tell me what to do
And please don't tell my Daddy that my Mommy hits me too

Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

Please don't let them hurt your children
We need love and shelter from the storm
Please don't let them hurt your children
Won't you keep us safe and warm

SCARED ME= Frightened me, made me feel afraid.

ON THE NEWS= On the TV programme where they tell what's happening today in the nation and in the world. When talking about what we see on television we always use the preposition ON.

BEATEN= (beat-beat-beaten) = hit-hit-hit.

BLACK AND BLUE= The colour you get on your body some time after being beaten. If they beat you black and blue, they hit you so strongly that they leave those marks on your body.

I'D TAKE THIS RIGHT TO YOU= I'd give my petition straight to you.

TELL THEM JUST HOW BIG THEY ARE= Make them understand that they are too big and strong, and she is too young and small.

I PRAY= I beg you; please.

SHELTER= Protection.

WON'T YOU KEEP US...? = Don't you want to keep us...? In this sentence, as it often happens, the verb WILL is not an auxiliary verb expression future, but a verb expression volition, so it means more or less the same as WANT. The phrase "won't you...?" is a common way to express a request:
- Won't you help me? = please, help me.
- Won't you come with me? = do you want to come with me? = please, come with me.

SHE MAY DIE= Maybe she will die. The verb MAY often expresses possibility.

SHE WOULD NEVER HAVE TO HURT AGAIN= She won't need to feel pain again.
