A Nationís tears


Once again the tears of the nation

Run like rivers for the hurt and dead

Guns, bombs, and knives tear apart our children

And cars and vans mow them down

They only wanted to go to a concert

They only wanted a night on the town


The killers cry Ďfor Allah we do thisí

And they think they die a martyrís death

But where is the glory in killing children

And taking away a young personís breath

All over the world the lied-to are killing

They donít care if the innocent die

And hidden in shame their leaders are speaking

Spouting out, lie after lie


I am a Christian and my heart is breaking

I know my Lordís heart is breaking too

Only one death was needed to save us

And Jesus gave His for me and you
