Lord, bind up the broken, the shattered hearts of love.
Bring down Your healing, send peace from heaven above.
So many little children, lives snuffed out today.
Oh my Heavenly Father, to You I now pray.

The tragedy in Connecticut, would never happen again.
Oh Lord, I pray for the families, in their excruciating pain.
Lord, my heart is aching, I know that Yours is too.
I pray that you’d bring healing to the survivors of this too.

Lord, we watch in horror, to think that this could be.
So many little children, sent to eternity.
Many adults that were with them, were caught in the carnage too.
Oh my Heavenly Father, what are we to do.

How do we heal the heartache, the shattered families.
Please send down Your Spirit, like a gentle breeze.
To bring hope and healing in the carnage of this man.
Oh Lord in this tragedy, You are the only one who can.

Bring about the healing, as only You can do.
Touch the shattered community, help us look to You.
Oh Lord, please stop these attacks on the innocent people.
I pray we’d lift our eyes and hearts, looking to Your steeple.

Lord, I can’t even imagine, the pain they’re going through.
How do they go on, what are they to do.
My heart is spilling over, my eyes well up with tears.
Lord, the healing of this community will take so many years.

Families planning for Christmas, now plan funerals in pain.
Oh Lord, please let this tragedy, never happen again.
Lord, bind up the broken, the shattered hearts of love.
Bring down Your healing, send peace from heaven above.
