Eleanor McEvoy Famine Lyrics

Last updated:

(Eleanor McEvoy)

An act of God has struck us
An act of faith sustains us
But it seems hopeless
And I feel helpless to you
An act of man has hit us
Worse than any God
And I can’t shield you
And I can’t shelter you,but

If you’re in need of comfort
I will do what I can
If I can’t feed your body
I’ll soothe it with my hands
If I can’t ease your hunger
I’ll give you all I have
To nourish and love
To nourish and love
To nourish and love

The country drenched in fever
The"Princess Alice" leaves her
But I can’t send you
And I can’t hope to save you
The hunger on this Island’s
Spread to every door
And I can’t shield you
And I can’t shelter you,but

Repeat CHORUS
