This is "The Little Girl" by john Michael Montgomery.  The lyrics are:

Her parents never took the young girl to church.
Never spoke of his name never read her his word.
Two non believers walking lost in this world
took their baby with them what a sad little girl.....
Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs.
never wanted to play or give kisses & hugs.
She'd watched the tv and sit there on the couch
while her mom feel asleep and her daddy went out
And the drinking and the fighting
just got worse every nite.
Behind their couch she'd be hiding
oh what a sad little life..

And like it always does the bad just got worse.
with every slap and every curse
Until her daddys in a drunk rage one nite
Used a gun on her mom and then took his life
And some ppl from the city took the girl far away
To a new Mom and a new Dad
Kisses & Hugs every day!

Her first day at Sunday school
The teacher walked in
and a small little girl stared at a picture of him....
She said I know that man
there on that cross I don't know his name
but I know he got off
cause he was there in my old house
held me close to his side....
as I hid there behind our couch the nite my parents died......
