God has them in his arms
All the children and their heroes
O, the tragedy of New town
My heart is broken . . .
I weep and pray for the little ones
And those who died with them
And even those who survived
Each day a reliving pain . . .
Mourned throughout the world
The grief and suffering unbearable
God, it is so hard to fathom the evil
My heart is bleeding tears . . .
All those babies and the adults
Safe within Heavens gate now
Each with delicate and beautiful wings
Angels shining bright . . .
I pray for their families and friends
There is no answer to the question why
You can ask forever and never know
This existence borrowed time . . .
God, is our world so hopeless and evil
That our babies must die, needlessly
And those who try to protect them
O, dry your glistening tears . . .
