Prayer For The Living
Words and Music by Wes Hamil
C 2001 Wes Hamil ASCAP

This is a Prayer For the Living
From Souls who have already gone
Gone from their everyday struggles
Into the Light, and beyond

This is a Prayer for the Children
Childhoods now broken and robbed
They don't understand all the suffering
They don't hate in the name of their God

Like any Prayer it is simple, something to keep in your heart
We pray to forgive, to learn how to live
We pray for some healing to start

This is a Prayer for the anger
The sadness that steals away days
This is a Prayer for the grieving
It comes back wit those memories

Like any Prayer it is simple, something to keep in your heart
We pray to forgive, to learn how to live
We pray for some healing to start

So don't look to God for some reason
Why People they choose to be cruel
cause Terror creates only terror
It's a weapon of cowards and fools

Innocence is the first victim
Everyone carries that pain
No matter what flag you stand under
No matter what homeland you claim

So this is a prayer for the Living, something to keep in your heart
We pray to forgive, and learn how to live
We pray for some healing to start
We pray for some healing to start
