Orphaned One is the first single from my campaign Songs for Orphans. My heart is to use music to impact people who are impoverished both physically and spiritually.

I hope to use this single to speak the Father's heart over people, showing them they are Sons and Daughters, while also using all of the proceeds I make to help HIV/Aids orphans at Agape International in Hyderabad, India.

I have set the price at a minimum of $1, but feel free to give more if you feel led to! ALL of the money I receive will go towards the orphans in India.


Orphaned one, lift up your eyes
I've given you my name
You are mine

I know well the sound of your cries
And you won't be denied
For I'm by your side

For all my glory will shine upon your face
My justice and my mercy will reign over this place
Oh, my love, my love will find you where you are

I've placed my beauty as a crown upon your head
I'll exchange your filthy garments
And you'll be clothed in white instead
Oh, my love, my love will find you where you are
