100 People In One Room

Words & Music By Bryan Sirchio (Based on a study by Dr. Lucille Pearson of Clemson University)


If the world were 100 people gathered in one room

An awfully blurry picture would snap right into view

It’s easier to see the direction things must move

When the world’s 100 people in one room

If there world were 100 people in one room…

57 would be Asian

21 would come from European nations

Just 14 from the entire Western Hemisphere

The other 8 would be from Africa

70 would be what we call people of color

30 would be what we call white

And of the 100 in the room at least 75

Would have no place to sleep tonight

No home of their own to sleep in tonight

Chorus

70 would not know how to read

30 at most will ever have the chance to learn to write

33 would call themselves Christian

67 embrace another way to seek the Light

80 of the 100 are severely malnourished

Suffering from hunger and disease

Of the 100 in the room there would only be 1

Who has a college degree

Only 1 with a college degree

Chorus

Bridge: Half of all the wealth in the world

Would be in the hands of 6 people

And all 6 of these would live in the USA

If the world were 100 people gathered in 1 room

Would we quickly see the disparity and do what’s ours to do

To help the dream of God become a dream that’s real and true

For every single person in the room

If the world were 100 people in one room

Blessing and Light for every person in the room

If the world were 100 people in one room
