Lament for the Unborn

I know some of my songwriting projects will probably never get published because of their topic or message. But 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.”
 
Please see the note at the bottom of this page if you are interested in participating in a special project related to this song.

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.
Oh 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.
