The album I found this song on doesn't have any writer credits.
A little baby's born Daddy's up and gone You see his mama cry Don't you turn away She's needing you today To help her dry her eyes
All God's lovely children Sometimes lose their ways All God's lovely children Need your love today
Met a little man Reaching out his hand He's reaching out for you Won't you take his hand Help him understand And try to see him through
All God's lovely children Sometimes lose their ways
