School bells toll a different
their chimes they ring in fear-
A Mother mourns with broken heart-
she weeps through falling tears-
Charred sights they fill the
another attack on life-
An empty shoe, a shattered world-
laced with pain and strife.
Innocence trampled by heathen
demons set loose to kill-
Children slain on the alter of
to forcefeed evil's will.
One child today or three thousand
on one side of the earth or the
Havoc travels through the minds of
while they pray for the childless
they grieve and long to caress,
the babe she labored for-
But the night falls coldest just
wounds leave scars.
Shrill sounds they echo about
the universe broken down-
His children lay dying from man's
at the hem of His sacred gown.
Oh Father we pray on bended knee,
hold those children tight-
Pull them to your chest in love-
to keep them safe this night.
Suffer little children to
come unto me,
and forbid them not;
for of such is the kingdom
Verily I say unto you,
Whosoever shall not receive
the kingdom of God
a little child shall in no
wise enter therein.
