Dead my daughter, dead my son.
Dead my lover, wrapped in cloth and laid in earth.
O Lord, bring peace to the hearts of war and hate.
O Lord, give rest to the taken ones whose peace will come too late.
We who have the most to tell have no voice to speak.
We who have the most to weep have no tears to let.
We who have the most to bear have been rendered weak.
We who are the most forgotten never can forget.
Lord, bring peace, that we may know our pain.
O Lord, bring peace, that we may love again,
that we may live again the lover’s touch,
that we may live again the love of earth,
and bless the birth of every child
that lights our way to God.
