With tear stained cheeks
and heavy heart,
we pray and ask You: Why?
Though we know it's guns that kill
we can't stop the rally cry.
Bring us to a place of peace
where we can do some good,
and focus on recovery
for the families, like we should.
May all whose lives were touched be healed,
faith restored, truth revealed.
You, Lord are the shining light,
through darkness and despair
please help Your children
through it all by answering our prayers.
