Intro:  B  C#m7  B  C#m7  B  Amaj7  B  Amaj7 
  
   B    C#m7     B  C#m7    B       Amaj7         B  Amaj7 
Another day in Nigeria the children beg for bread, 
B          C#m7        B        C#m7          B        Amaj7     B  Amaj7 
the crops have failed, the well ran dry when they lost the watershed. 
  B    C#m7      B      C#m7       B        Amaj7        B  Amaj7 
A baby dies, its mother cries, the children gather 'round 
B     C#m7         B        C#m7             B      Amaj7 
They're wondering what the day will bring, will they be the next one found? 
  
B  Amaj7 
  
  
A      B       A      B        G#m7   C#m7  G#m7   C#m7 
Do you dare to gaze into their hollow eyes, hollow eyes? 
A        B       A        B              G#m7   C#m7  G#m7   C#m7 
Are they staring holes in you with their hollow eyes, hollow eyes, 
B      C#m7   B  C#m7  B  Amaj7  B  Amaj7 
hollow eyes? 
  
  
       B       C#m7               B         C#m7       B       Amaj7 
In the crowded sheds the children lay their heads to escape the Hatian heat. 
  
B  Amaj7 
  
    B      C#m7             B      C#m7             B    Amaj7 
The hunger pains drive them to the street wond'ring if today they'll eat. 
  
B  Amaj7 
  
     B    C#m7        B      C#m7  B      Amaj7        B  Amaj7 
Some find food in the refuse heap, others find disease, 
     B       C#m7   B       C#m7      B        Amaj7         B  Amaj7 
some find it harder just to live when they can die with ease. 
  
A      B       A      B        G#m7   C#m7  G#m7   C#m7 
Do you dare to gaze into their hollow eyes, hollow eyes? 
A        B       A        B              G#m7   C#m7  G#m7   C#m7 
Are they staring holes in you with their hollow eyes, hollow eyes, 
B      C#m7   B  C#m7 
hollow eyes? 
  
  
  
    F#m                  Dmaj7  A 
The least of these is hungry.      The least of these is sick. 
    F#m                     Dmaj7  A 
The least of these needs clothing.    The least of these needs drink. 
  
Dmaj7  A 
  
    D        E              F#m  E      D            E            F#m 
The least of these knows sorrow.    The least of these knows grief. 
    D            E      F#m  E  D                E      F#m 
The least of these has suffered pain, and Jesus is His name. 
  
A      B       A      B        G#m7   C#m7  G#m7   C#m7 
Do you dare to gaze into their hollow eyes, hollow eyes? 
A     B       A       B            G#m7   C#m7  B      C#m7 
Is He staring back at you with His hollow eyes, hollow eyes, 
  
(This last one is very soft) 
  
B       C#m 
hollow eyes? 
  
  
These are the chord forms I use for this song.  Just so you know, each 
vertical line is a string, the number to the left is top fret of the chart, 
the o's are where your fingers are, the ---'s represent barres, the x's at 
the top mean don't play this string, and finally, each horizontal line 
is a fret.  i.e. For a B, you have a one finger barre at the second fret, 
and the D, G & B strings depressed at the fourth fret. 
  
  
       B              C#m7                 Amaj7            G#m7 
                                        x 
  -----------     -----------          -----------      -----------

      F#m             Dmaj7            I think you can figure out how to 
                   x x                 play the other chords by yourself. 
  -----------      -----------         (A D, & E)
