What happened to the loving mothers?
In tenderness they held their young.
But now they kill the precious children
To keep their song of life unsung
Rejecting all their little fingers
And choking out their birth’s first cry
In silent waters they die suffering
No lullaby to satisfy
Where are the arms to hold the babe
And comfort the little helpless one
Never kissed, or rocked or even loved
Their hopeful future is all undone
What animal rips her helpless young
And tears it limb from limb?
Or poisons in a salty grave
This death is clearly sin
Oh God, receive your little ones
Rejected here on earth
Forgive us all for not protecting
The babies through their birth
