Slavery Cannot Remain

They walk the streets
As their numb hearts beat,
Imprisoned again
By paying men.

Their pimps threaten them
To remain in their sickening sins.
They obey against their will,
Their minds broken by the costly bill.

The Lord will reach them and not allow
This sordid trade to continue, He vows.
But we are His instruments to break their chains,
‘Cause this hellish slavery cannot remain.
