Come you abandoned you forsaken
friendless and alone
come refugees left homesick for some place
you've never known
here princes paupers criminals and saints
are all the same
no more or less than god's beloved child
aboard this train
Come ride ride on the orphan train
put your ear to the track you can hear your name
come ride ride on the orphan train
it'll take you all the way home
-- Julie Miller, "Orphan Train"
There was a great article about my friend John in last Friday's Columbus Dispatch. John is is in Cambodia now, along with 8 other members of our church.
