25 3 of 7 Can you feel the hearts of the children? Aching for home, for something of their very own Reaching hands, with nothing to hold on to, But hope for a better day a better day. Offertory “Prayer of the Children”

26 4 of 7 Crying softly, help me To feel the love again in my own land But if unknown roads lead away from home, Give me loving arms, away from harm Offertory “Prayer of the Children”

27 5 of 7 Can you hear the voice of the children? Softly pleading for silence in a shattered world? Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate, Blood of the innocent on their hands Offertory “Prayer of the Children”

28 6 of 7 Crying softly, help me To feel the sun again upon my face, For when darkness clears I know you’re near, Bringing peace again Offertory “Prayer of the Children”
