Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

In the name of, and by the power of the Holy Spirit,
May we invoke your intercession for the children of England,
Some of whom have seen murder so unseen,
Some of whom have been taken.
Let not another child be slain.
Let not another search be made in vain.
Jah, forgive us for forgetting,
Jah, help us be more loving.
You see, the teachers are representing you
So badly that not many can see you.
Let not another child be slain.
Let not another search be made in vain.
Jah, cause the ones whose beliefs kill children to
Feel the love of you and be healed,
And may we all cry, too, for representing you
So badly, so badly.
Jah, forgive us for forgetting.
Oh, Jah, help us to be forgiving.
The teachers are representing you so badly
That not many can see you.
Let not another search be made in vain.
Let not another child be slain.
