I think this counts for both the #publicdomain challenge and the week 2 challenge.
This was all an experiment. I wanted to respond to the public domain Sunday school song with modern situations and concerns. I wanted to try loop based writing. I was trying to evoke a downtempo hip-hop vibe but failed. All of the spoken lyrics were freestyle improvised.
The midi sources were from free to use online sources.

Jesus Loves the Little Children percussion:
scored by Glenna Loughlin
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in his sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
Spoken Word 1:
Now some people may ask:
Who are the children that Jesus loves?
Who really are the children that Jesus loves?
Does Jesus love all the children?
Really? All of the Children?
Spoken Word 2:
Yes, Jesus loves all of the children.
Children with different coloured skin than your own
Children with different colored eyes
Children who speak different languages, from different cultures, from different religions
Spoken Word 3:
Children who are homeless
Children separated from their families and put in cages
Children who dare to speak to truth to power
Children who will rise up and create a new world and a new society
Spoken Word 4:
All of the children means all of the children...
