Lament for the Unborn

There are times as a songwriter you just have to put pen to paper. Your heart is in it, and you must write. Such is the case with my “Lament for the Unborn.”

Lament for the Unborn

Secret teardrops, silent cribs,
Speak of countless lives unlived.
Hear a heartbeat in a tomb,
Can this be a mother’s womb?
 
The defenseless sacrificed
For a promised paradise.
Lies of freedom drown the pain,
Loud and harsh like driving rain.
 
Forgive us, mighty God.
We confess; we repent.
Defend them, mighty God.
We regret, we lament.
 
Midnight vigils left unlit
For the infants deemed unfit.
Can they tell us? Can they hide?
Can they help what we decide?
 
Forgive us, mighty God.
We confess; we repent.
Defend them, mighty God.
We regret, we lament.
 
We pray for a future,
We hope for a day,
Your image will be sacred
The innocent will play.
 
We long for Your justice,
We know You are strong.
O God, right the wrong.
 
Forgive us, mighty God.
We confess; we repent.
Defend them, mighty God.
We regret, we lament.

  1. Thank-you for your words.They had to be written.My heart has been broken for so many years that nobody will save our babies.I spoke to teen girls against abortion over thirty years ago when we lived in Orlando.Abortion has become their birth control.Thank you for the reminder that we can’t forget and have to keep speaking out.We are the guardians of these little ones.They cannot speak for themselves.Like the Holocaust we must never forget.Someone needs to remember and cry.I will.Diane B.
