1 Do you know the world is dying
For a little bit of love?
Ev'rywhere we hear the sighing
For a little bit of love;
For the love that rights a wrong,
Fills the heart with hope and song;
They have waited, oh, so long,
For a little bit of love.
For a little bit of love,
For a little bit of love.
They have waited, oh, so long,
For a little bit of love.

2 From the poor of ev'ry city,
For a little bit of love,
Hands are reaching out in pity
For a little bit of love;
Some have burdens hard to bear,
Some have sorrows we should share;
Shall they falter and despair
For a little bit of love?
For a little bit of love,
For a little bit of love.
Shall they falter and despair
For a little bit of love?

3 Down before their idols falling,
For a little bit of love,
Many souls in vain are calling
For a little bit of love;
If they die in sin and shame,
Someone surely is to blame
For not going in His name,
With a little bit of love.
With a little bit of love,
With a little bit of love.
For not going in His name,
With a little bit of love.

4 While the souls of men are dying
For a little bit of love,
While the children, too, are crying
For a little bit of love;
Stand no longer idly by,
You can help them if you try;
Go, then, saying, "Here am I,"
With a little bit of love.
With a little bit of love,
With a little bit of love,
Go, then, saying, "Here am I"
With a little bit of love.
