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
